Little Feat (the Stain)
|243 page views|
Me starting the crux in the Stain.
A wall classic. Bring some crimp strength, endurance, and good footwork for this short punchy route.
Mantle up onto the starting ledge. Start crimping up the brown streak and beautiful little mail slots. Clip the bolt and start the sustained crux. Move up to the next bolt and make the final difficult move onto the ledge. Plug some gear and continue moving up and right up a short blocky dihedral to the anchors.
This is the obvious brown streak right in center of the lower wall. A heads up start to the first bolt.
Two bolts protect the first 25', a rack of tri-cams or some medium sized cams is all that is needed for the top. Rap from the two bolt anchor just below the top. A 60m will easily get you down.
