Bastille - M-F closures. Climbing reopened after flood MORE INFO >>>


This distinct route lies just right of center on the lower left side of Physical Crag.

Starting from the ledge above the low-angle moderate slab, climb up and left to below a broken area with a large roof. A good cam can probably be placed back in before climbing up in to a slot with hand-to-fist sized jams and gear, before a roof is turned on jugs to enter a right-facing corner. Climb up the corner on moderate difficulty (5.7?) to top out and finish the pitch.

The overhang is the crux and difficulty may be strength and [height-dependent]. The holds are all jugs though and the apes like me will be bound to down-grade it.


Lead on a standard rack with a few mild runouts or TR from a tree above with a directional in the crack to avoid any swing.
