Hard Kor pulls the dark roof just left of Kor's Co...


Climb the first four bolts of Kor's Corner, with a long sling on the fourth bolt and then bust left through the steep roof/bulge on good holds but with big, powerful moves. Finish at a good stance with an anchor. An extension exists called More Kor, checking in at the same grade.


Start the same as Kor's Corner, and then head left at the big roof.


7 bolts.

Two of the three bolts plus the shared bolt with Kor's Corner have been replaced with fresh stainless steel hardware from Climbing Magazine's Anchor Replacement Initiative.

The permanent draws that were on bolts 2, 3, and 4 (the double draw) were looking manky when I climbed this today. The first two permanent draws weren't closing, and the dogbones looked a bit dodgy. I swapped them out with some of my draws. I replaced the doubled up draw with another doubled up draw.

The fixed biners at the top are in good shape, so I left those.

If your draws were the permanent draws and you would like them back, just shoot me an email or post here. My contact info is in my profile.
