Jimbo in the 3rd dimension


A fun pull over a steep bulge leads to interesting climbing up a head wall to the arete.
Engage the arete in a 3 dimensional manner then finish on thought provoking slab moves.

This line is the furthest right of the routes at Middle Earth. It is on a different wall.

Moderate climbing on gritty, lichen-covered rock leads to a technical arete with great moves. A helmet is suggested for the belayer as both my partner and I pulled off fist-sized pieces.

High crux moves with sweeping views. A mental test-piece with moderate balance moves on mediocre quality stone. A good climb, if you're into this sort of thing.
