Past the opening crux on Handjob...the fun stemmin...

Seasonal Raptor Closure 2012 MORE INFO >>>

Description 

A tricky bouldering start is probably the crux of this route. Good protection soon follows with stemming/jamming moves up a set of double cracks. A very good route that I think borders on classic.

Location 

Hand Job Wall (on the north side of the Crooked River)

Protection 

Gear to 2 1/2 inches.

If you're tall (enough), the starting crux is a one-move wonder which is then followed by fun stemming & double finger crack jamming to the anchors.

The first couple moves off the deck are very hard for 10b. I have watched many leaders jump off the start multiple times before getting it. The landing is somewhat awkward, so a good spot is key. Two spotters is even better.

Once you're past the start, the rest of the route is soft for 10b. Fun stemming and double-crack climbing, although there's not really all that much hand jamming on it. Really Original Sin should have been called Hand Job, since Original Sin is almost completely hands.
