KJ working the route!


Begin at a vertical crack about 6 feet left of Foreign Invasion. Climb through the hourglass crack formation, then past several small corners to top.


Crash pad to protect fall before jesus nut.

Everytime I head up to Allamuchy I climb this route =) A lot of fun and a nice warm-up for the crag. It's one of the longest routes on the Main Wall besides 'A Year in the Life'.

This was my first climb here. Very nice climbing, albeit fearful in a few spots. Very R me thinks.

Small pieces (nuts and TCUs) protect the bottom of the climb and once you get midway, the larger cracks are a godsend for protection. Fun!
