a few moves before the crux


A long line with endless jugs and no excellent rests, this route will make you work even though its hardest move isn't harder than 5.11c.

This route was always a favorite of 5.12 climbers visiting RRG along with the other 5.12s on this section of Torrent.

Start up the dihedral on the far left side of the wall. This is a sustained climb of pockets crimps and slopers. Find a technical slabby section just over half way followed by a definitive 5.12 crux. Fight off the pump and finish on fun moves to the anchors. This is an addictive climb that you will want to do over and over.

Great route... despite the "11c" comment, there is a solid V4 move up high and the route has never been rated easier than 12b in any guidebook
