Death of a Decade, Peter Springs leading just abov...



This is a very dynamic stemming route up an interesting left-facing dihedral just to the right of Soft Cell (5.10c/d). Lots of fun and a good workout. The rock quality is great and a decent is easyily made from the chains atop Soft Cell.


There is a fixed pin and one bolt on the route. Standard rack from 1/2" to 3".

Good moves, good rock and close to the car, but three stars out of three seems a little enthusiastic. Two stars out of five.

As of 11/10 no fixed pin. Bolt looked a bit rusty.
