Holey Wars - in the crux moves.


Amazing route on some of the best rock in the Gorge. It's climbing minimalism at it's best. Long moves on very thin holds. There are two rests before the last crux section which climbs through a mono - then you gotta hold on for the pump until the end. Powerful and techy.

Best hard route in the gorge. Sustained crimping on bullet rock. Thanks Todd G. for hooking this thing up.

Brilliant hard and sustained route. True gorge power endurance test piece. Much failure on this one before red-pointing. I'd give it 13c.
