Well, I am surprised no one have posted up this classic. An absolute kicker climb. Powerful and technical.


Above the ramp on Standard Route is an obvious big overhanging flake. Hard underclings and a very tough move at the end. From atop p1 a thin crack goes to the top.

Tom Callaghan's legendary Gale Force 10+ XX is the left hand finish.


small and big

John, I've had friends get on this and describe the rock as less than awesome. How hard do you think it is to get established in the flake proper after the underclinging part?

It's not the best but pretty decent I think. The undercling is pretty hard and the exit move in my mind is the crux. It's a long reach to a fair jam
I think it's just awesome
