Litmus Test

Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>


Solid 5.10 climbing directly up the face gives way to a nice resting stance. Shake out, and pull a series of gnarly moves to get over the left part of the well-protected roof.


7 bolts and a 2-bolt chained anchor


On the north face of Division, just to the right of Physical Therapy and Teenagers in Heat. The first bolted line right of the tree.

2 distinct sections. the first section goes 11a, then you get a rest then get psyched pulling the roof. commit to crimpers and try to find some good feet - its a nice boulder problem. exhilerating. you can breath at the top.

Good first 11c as there is one small crux section.

Very fun climb on a beautiful line. Committing to small crimps at the roof is the trick, until you can find decent feet.

Ryan is right. If you find the feet right for the roof moves it's not that bad. Psyched to onsite this baby back in the day.
