JAG fires the crux throw

Description 

The Big Wall of Birdsboro Quarry.

A 60m rope will do fine with the lower offs here. It's not really two pitches... it's just got first anchors and second anchors.


Getting There 

From the welcome sign, follow the path to the left. Pass the Main Wall, Orange Sunshine Wall, Slab Climbs, Zorro Face, and Mid Wall on your left. Now look up for steep rock standing high overhead, and you're at the Big Wall.

Starting the technical crux of Groovin'

Groovin' 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a  PA : Birdsboro Quarry : Big Wall
Angles up and right to a good rest below a short, left-facing corner. Clip the bolt on the face left of the corner, not the old one on the right side of it. Technical crux is getting up this corner to the good holds above (and a bolt near the top of the corner).From there head out right on good hands. Head up before working back left near the top. The upper section has good holds and fun moves - don't get pumped out before the anchors.I found the anchors tricky to clip, but maybe I'm missing...[more]   Browse More Classics in PA
