Cord making the committing first clip on Director ...

Description 

Really fun jug haul - steep with big holds.

Starts with a steep rightward traverse on good holds to a huge horn. The crux is right down near the first and second bolts.


Location 

This is the furthest left route on the crag. A nice looking 5.13 is just to the right of this route.


Protection 

5 bolts to chain anchors

Biggest holds imaginable, with climbing very reminiscent of the cave in the gym. Some of the jugs are loose though, so test and climb with care.

definitely easier than those .10's on the middle of the wall. Great warmup.

Great climb, but rating might be a little soft...but I will take it. I did not notice any loose holds and I climbed it twice and my wife did also. Great climb. Get on it!

Awesome climb. Move quick and avoid the pump. Overhanging exposed climbing with large jugs lead to vertical or less than vertical rock with balancy moves on okay holds. My first .11a.

Great Route and pumpy but not 11a. If I were to rate it I would say maybe 10c.

5.10c-5.11a. I'll let someone who's at that level decide since the difference isn't as clear anymore. The truth is it's easy and it's a great warm up if you're going to hop on anything inside the cave.

If you liked this route try Lambada. It's much better, and a more solid 5.11a. It contains the best part of Director of Humor affairs, but it has even a better crux on the variation.

The second bolt has been replaced once again. It is a large glue-in bolt and is bomber. A must do everytime one climbs at Turtle Wall.
