  • Description 

    A perplexing and engaging line that left me utterly destroyed but eager for a rematch. While the ratings suggest otherwise I personally found this line to be harder than Block Party.

    Stem past the first bolt before fully committing to the face. Levitate over miniscule crimps and nonexistent feet to a left arching detached lip. Follow the weakness left, pulling the lip, to gain access to a series of jugs followed by a rest. After recovering overcome a baffling section of slopers and edges to reach a rail with two flakes. Make one final move to reach larger features on Fortress-like rock. Follow spaced out bolts to the chains.


    Capillary Attraction is located in the chimney between Raven B and Raven C. It starts from a small boulder at the highest point. This is just right of the two chockstones which make up the first moves on Block Party. The first three bolts are shared with Right Ventricle. Capillary Attraction is the left branch.


    12 bolts to ring anchors.
