Mellow Gold


Fun, sustained climbing on steep golden-brown rock. Slopey edges and crimpers lead you to a distinct crux half way up.

The crux on this one involves a hard reachy undercling move with bad feet to get to slopey arete sidepull action. Then you reach jugs and you can breathe easy to the top. A bunch of fairly hard bouldery moves made this one feel a bit harder than depth.

Great Route. Bouldery start topped with powerful moves through the undercling. Feels harder than other 12a on same wall. Quality route!!!

Hard and a bit out of character for the area with a couple sections of absolutely miserable feet (slab). I thought the crux was below the undercling section, a big deadpoint to a decent hold from a shitty crimp and bad feet. The moves are great the whole way, the line feels significantly harder than DOF or pitbulls...
