Feet First. 5.9 R
|188 page views|
Located from the Two Fingers Canyon area. Climbed on sight, bolts placed on lead from free stances.
On both pitches the climbing is quite sustained. The second 5.9 pitch is perhaps not quite as technical as the first 5.9 pitch but the strata is upside down rather like the tiles of a roof and the 30' runouts between bolts keeps the mind focused (feet first).
Starts from the top of a wave that has a prominate junaper tree at its top.See topo. About 30mins walk north from the road end.
P1) Up the short dark brown slab past a bolt at 15'. Move left then right and follow a total of 7 bolts to double anchors.160'5.9.
P2)Climb out left from the belayto a bolt at about 25' . Trend up to the right and up across the awkward but low angled slab past four more bolts to double anchors.160' 5.9R..
Rap the route.
