Me on Industrial Bliss 10a****

Open, with restrictions: Park on the street MORE INFO >>>

Description 

A manufactured climb that route developer created into a very high quality climb that I consider the best 5.10 at the crag. Climb goes straight up, passing the very left side of a small roof to all positive holds. Steepens up at top right before the anchors.

Location 

10 feet right of Mass Production, 5th route to the right and starts on top of a small rock. Rappel or lower down

Protection 

8 botls to double ring anchors

The best of the bunch here with intriguing sequences on positive pockets and a little bit of a pump thrown in for good measure.

I can't fathom why this is a 4 star rating... It feels like a gym climb, the beta is revealed just by looking at it since its a "chipped" route. Very pumpy like a gym, ok moves but deep holds like a 5.8 or 5.9. I guess this would be like an indoor 5.10a. Very different for an outdoor climb.

Couldn't find the alleged intriguing sequences--climbs like a ladder. Straight on, pocket to pocket.

Steep and pumpy toward the end--if 10a is your limit, this is not a gimme for that grade.

Fun route, easy holds but provides a good pump. Made me realize what a fat tub-o-lard I am. This wall is totally manufactured and they did a good job at it. Thanks for the hard work.

This is a fun route,super protected with bolts after every 2-3 moves. Everyone is right, this is an outdoor gym route. Got a super awesome pump on the lead, it's just a really cool route.
