|The Black Hole
Add Photo Add Comment Printer View
Full Wisdom is a classic endurance testpiece at Morrison. The problem starts under at the far right of the Black Hole, (under the leaning rock) and it traverses up the rock on the overhanging traverse above the Black Hole. Begin on a big hold and move up on easy rock (jugs) until you will find the obvious crux.... A wicked section with a pissy little crimper that will work you. Crank through this section and finish what is known as Upper Wisdom. If you wish, you can start above this crimper crux for the V3 version Upper Wisdom. Classic problem and a good challenge.
A bouldering pad is nice....

Not a bad idea to have 2 pads in both cruxes, and a person to spot at both locations as well. The lower crux is crimpy and technical, with possible knee scumming, toe hooking, etc. Watch the dab!

One of the best routes here. Get this one wired and run laps to get really strong....

I was up here with Jim Garber the day of the Fourmile fire (getting the tour from him), and he said he named the problem as he was also working on "The Wisdom" in Eldo at the same time and felt this was good practice for the climbs 2nd pitch. I wonder if he knows who did the FA; perhaps him since he had the naming rights.
