Matt Kuehl on Chinese Handcuffs, 5.12a at The Monu...


Chinese Handcuffs is the obvious sick looking tips & ringlock splitter on quality looking sandstone on the northern end of The Monument wall.

Begin up the twin cracks moving from one crack to another. Very good and varied movement. Surmount a bulge midway and stare up at the vicious splitter that awaits. Plug some gear and chug-a-lug your way up clipping the bolt if you please or placing a small cam that protects the strenuous crux quite nicely. Continue upwards. Nice send, friend.

Rap off the pine tree at the top.


Double cams from .3-.75 (Camalots) 1 each #1 & #2. C3's or TCU's at the very top.
