Pulling off the one arm, finger lock lever on Kiss...

Bastille - M-F closures. Climbing reopened after flood MORE INFO >>>


This climbs out the east overhang of the block to its summit. The crux is height-dependent, although the mantle is a crux as well. From the ramp, one must compress out and get a tip fingerlock with the left hand, set into the lock, hold the lever, and one arm pull through and reach to the sloper shelf above. Then you must swing out onto the mantle shelf and mantle utilizing a small layaway crimper out left. Stand onto the shelf, and continue on easier rock to the top.


It is located on the east overhang of the River Block.
