BETA PHOTO: Jason McNabb... Highly Suspicious


This route climbs the southwest shoulder of station 13. Begin using the handcrack of Spooky, at twenty five feet gain a flake and rail to clip the first bolt. A refrigerator squeezing crux is encountered between this and the second bolt. Continue up following more bolts to a very balancy crux with a hard clip at the seventh bolt. The climbing here is exposed and unique with step throughs and side pulls! Keep on with the bolt line encountering another crux at the tenth bolt. Big moves take you to lucky number eleven... don't blow it going to the top or it will be lucky number 13.


Southwest shoulder of Station 13


Hand size pieces for the beginning crack. Eleven bolts... bring a couple of longer runners for the last two bolts and gear placements at the bottom. Watch your rope! Lowering on an 80 meter will get you back down. Barely.

Witty pose makes for a great route description. Refrigerator squeezing = compression problem?

Hey, so, this says that it is a 40' (40m instead?) route with 12 bolts + pro. I feel like that is probably incorrect. Anybody have more accurate information?

Yes it is 40m not 40'. Can barely TR with an 80m rope. There is now a set of anchors for this route, just below the summit. Also, probably harder than 13a, I don't believe it has been repeated.

I've corrected the height to 120', and added a warning that lowering on an 80-meter rope will (barely) get you down.
