The illustrious Mike Pope on lead with Bob Harring...

Description 

Very long and steep climb. Thin crux down low (which can be avoided by climbing way right) to steep jug haul to pumpy bulge.


Location 

Can just lower to the large ledge with a 70m rope with the belayer on the ground. Be very careful of rope ends.


Protection 

11 bolts

Fantastically long. The runout sections didn't seem too threatening, especially since they are high on the route. In my opinion, the 5.11 rating comes from the sustained nature of the route, not because there are any particularly memorable cruxes.

My favorite Gorge pitch! The runouts in the middle keep my attention every time.
