Finders Keepers, 5.12c, The Cirque

Description 

This route starts with some semi-strenuous moves through a bulge, followed by a couple nice moves on slopey features. Once through this section move left toward some large jigsaw plates. Enjoy long reaches and lie back moves until you encounter a final horizontal ledge. Rest at the ledge and then get ready to ramp up the intensity for the last three bolts of climbing. Be prepared for some aggressive moves through crimps, sidepulls and slopers. If you're carrying a pump the anchor clip can be hard so be sure to maintain focus until the end.


Location 

'Finders Keepers' is on the right side of the cirque. It can be identified by its eye catching right facing flake system.


Protection 

9 bolts + anchor

This route is a bit height dependent, but still doable if you're short. Expect some dynamic moves if you're on the shorter end of 5'. If you're tall this is probably one of the better warm ups because its mainly downward pulling on good holds with no cirque-like funk.

i'm 5'8" and found no height dependent moves. this thing is rad. only negative to it is the large amounts of epoxy used on the flakes just before the last bolt.

5'8" is a pretty average height. I wouldn't expect any moves to be height dependent for a person of this size. I would expect individuals 5'5" and shorter to have a distinct disadvantage making it through the last couple of bolts.

I'm 5'6" -1 ape, and would concur about height dependency.
