  • Description 

    Wild, steep climbing up pockets of choss!

    All right, its not that bad. More accurately graded on here, Blind Faith is a short, strenuous, gentle looking line that finishes on a smooth, cryptic face. A satisfying redpoint or onsight, Blind Faith offers just that, blind faith. If you can get this route clean, you'll experience disbelief without true understanding or perception.



    This route lies directly across from Social Realism in the shotgun alley between Tower 2 & 3 The route is the obvious, bolted, hueco system.

    Sorry I think I sandbagged this route the first ascent went really well so I figured it was 11a then my brother and I climbed it again 2 years latter and thought it was more like 11b/c The crux move is reachy so if you are short it may be evan harder. Sean H.

    Agreed. That thing kicked my ass. Pumpy jug haul to the midway hole then big moves to devious sidepulls and a hell of a hard time getting the feet out of the hole and onto the face. Stout.

    The crux bolt is in a really shitty spot and the nut is loose. I hand tightened it as well as I could but beware, this is where falls happen. Maybe moving it a few inches to the right makes sense? It gets in the way of the undercling that makes the whole route, the draw resting on your thumb and being a giant pain in the ass.
