Pitch 1 of Centennial
|Voluntary Closure Every June and Seasonal Peregrine Closures MORE INFO >>>|
Centennial starts between Graeme's Line (left) and Last Laugh (right). Look for the broken off column inbetween these 2 climbs, Centennial starts off as a right facing dihedral 2 cracks to the right of the broken column. This is a beautiful climb that starts off on nuts and cams and then moves to pin driving ... lots of it. The finish (pitch 4) needs larger pro.According to a local climbing guru, the first pitch was once set as a top-rope problem (he aided in the previous day), but none of the 5.12+ climbers staying at the KOA could do it. Maybe you can!
Takes lots and lots of blades and angles. The last pitches take larger gear.
