  • Description 

    Climb some tricky moves off the ground through a perpetually wet section of rock to a good rest bucket and a bolt. Make an awkward, strenuous stemming move into the right facing corner and then climb hero jugs up to an "in your face" bear hug move at the top...

    Location 

    Left of Against the Grain. Past the paradox bolt line. There is a discontinuous crack system and right facing corner climbing through a wet section of the cliff.

    this description pretty much sums it up, tricky moves getting out of the roof but good holds. Defiantly a bit awkward but a good pumpy route, wouldn't be great to TR, we had quite a hard time just pulling the rope after leading

    It's completely unnecessary but just for shits I lead this on gear. Totally goes with reasonable pro. Not quite G-rated but not bad.

    Just for clarity, Zak's comment about not an easy TR is prior to a shared anchor being installed with Paradox. The anchor sits between the two lines and facilitates easy top-roping if you're able to get to the top of either line.

    This anchor was converted to a pig-tail lower-off a couple months ago. Please help the hardware last as long as possible and don't top-rope directly through the pig-tail. Setup your own top-rope anchor off the bolts/chain and just thread through the pig-tail when you need to break down your TR anchor.
