Featured Route For Sugarloaf, East Face
Taurus 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- E3 5c CA : Tahoe Vicinity : ... : Sugarloaf, East Face
Taurus is an outstanding thin crack to lieback. The crux comes right off the ground, moving on good locks with smear feet. You can get a good nut, then small but solid gear. Pull the .11b crux to a stance. Then, climb the finger crack up, do some strenuous .10 lieback underclinging out left. Finish up a mantel and walk up the ramp to the chains.This route was soloed by first ascentionist Mark Hudon in the late 70s, so get after it!...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
