About to work the crux moves.

Description 

The most popular route on the Main Wall. Follow the line of XL jugs up until the bolt line splits, follow the jugs to the right. The crux can be pulled multiple ways but involves the right hand undercling, high feet, and a toss, the true crux is just being fresh for the crux, as the move is probably only v0+.

Location 

This route is located about dead center of the main wall, directly left of the large dead stump. The anchor can be easily recognized by the hideously massive biner stealing chain wrapped around the large pine tree.

Protection 

8 bolts or so?

Very good route! All the moves are pretty big but the holds are huge. Hardest thing about this route is fighting the pump

French 6c+, reachy.
For an easier version, start up this and finish up fashion victim, voila! missing out both cruxs and no reachy moves, but still getting pumped at F6c ish.

(Fashion to Crank is fun too)

The name says it all, pump fest. Watch out for the poison oak, it abounds!
