  • Description 

    When facing the Main Wall, Desperado Wall is the large wall to the right of the Ramp feature. Pass a wooded buttress to get to the routes. Reckless Criminal is a bit right of buttress.

    Brain Damage 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- E4 5c  NC : Closed : ... : Desperado Wall
    This is a nice route that has quite a few hidden holds. Climb hard moves past the first bolt to a good stance (stick clip usefull here). From the good stance, clip the bolt out left, then crank up and left to another stance at the 3rd bolt. Negotiate the crux to great holds and another bolt. Long moves get you to some gear, and easier terrain. Continue up to the 2 bolt anchor above the moss pad....[more]   Browse More Classics in NC
