Aftershock

Description 

Aftershock starts out casual, climbing a steep, blocky ramp. Encounter a ledge and find some protection. Prepare yourself here for the next series of very committing moves. -Turning back will be difficult- Proceed with caution up and right through flakes and crimps, moving and stemming carefully through the crux. Stay tight and watch those feet; clip a piton and jam to more secure ground. Follow the crack around the face and locate the anchors.

  • Aftershock originally had a bolt to protect the crux. It appears and disappears leaving holes and bolt sleeves. With help from MW of the ASCA, we patched this hole in Aug 08. The crux was found to be adequately protected without the bolt.


Location 

Aftershock is on the East facing wall of the The Cathedral. This route starts just right of Skinny Len Crimps on blocky, bulging terrain.


Protection 

Set of Stoppers, Cams from .3 to #3 bd, and slings. One piton plus chains.

Damn that thing is scary without the bolt... There's good gear in a horizontal a third of the way up and 2 nuts can be had before committing to the steep airy crux. Both seem decent enough but require quite a bit of messing around and end up well below your feet when you get into the thick of things.

Anyone know the story of that bolt? Seems like a lot of hardware comes and goes in Fergs these days and it doesn't always seem to be for ethical reasons.
If I find you pulling pins/bolts there, I'll bash your skull in.
