|High Wire Crag
|Temporary closures near Fiscal Cliff: May-July 2014 MORE INFO >>>|
Start on two good, incut crimpers, climb straight up following bolts to a good rest below the roof (12a/b), then clip the draw in the roof and make big moves out the horizontal roof (12+). This is height dependent. Mantel and clip the anchors.
This is on the east side of Tunnel Two, right of the tunnel. It is above Hip at the Lip and Power Play and below Idiot Savant. Approach by walking up the slabs on the north side of the road before Tunnel Two (like you're walking to Twitch, 5.12d). Continue up slabs until it's possible to walk left to the base of the cliff.

Already quite clean despite being so new (much more so than Ghetto Activity). Route climbs really well... fun moves through the roof! Thanks for the effort on some new routes, Matt.

I appreciate the feedback, Steve, nice to get positive words on MP once and a while.

A nice addition to the canyon and a reason to visit this seldom climbed at crag. Depending on your strengths, the techy bottom half may seem cruxier than the roof. Thanks, Matt.

Lower part felt much harder than the roof to me. Roof is wild and exciting nevertheless.

This seems pretty hard unless you are probably 6' or taller.

If one wants, a lower start is available off of the nice, big, jug rail that forms the first foot for the regular start. This adds some difficulty to the route. "Low Down Dirty?"
