crux

Description 

The bulging face is probably the crux. Bucket pockets and rails makes this a fun, albeit a bit pumpy climb. A scrambling start to a ledge before the route kicks in.


Location 

W-NW facing, this climb is mostly in the shade; we climbed in mid June. Left of KBG and left of the bolted (5.8) chimney.


Protection 

Six bolts; well protected. Two-shut anchor.

Fun climb, free start with great moves at the top end. Fun climb. Thanks for this route.

You can use the first two bolts on First Born to protect your start if you don't want to go all the way up to the first bolt scrambling. That would cause some excessive rope drag, so I'd only recommend it if you can arrange for someone to climb First Born and unclip those two bolts once you are protected by a bolt or two on this route.
