|Upper Elbow Room
Technical face to a nice steep hand crack behind a flake. It then joins Post Partum for the last three bolts.
This one should probably have two ratings. 10d for following the bolt line religiously, or 10b for climbing to the left. It is very easy to skip the crux by climbing to a ledge after the first bolt, then back right.
Starts about 20 feet left of Post Partum.
8 bolts to lower off.

One of my favorite gorge routes. Spicy off the deck, technical and thin the first 30 feet. Then wild overhung layback/ hands, finishing with jugs. Climbing moves, bottom to top. Also, a gorgeous setting by the creek in the shade.

Great Climb! Did this the other day, placed a #2 behind the flake, much easier than trying to clip that bolt while laying back that flake.
