Enjoying Mercy the Huff!!


Amazingly fun movement on pretty good holds. There are many decent rests with the pump being the main crux.

This is one of the best routes I have climbed at the Red.


Take the original start for Table of Colors and head right.


9 bolts to fixed biners, often has fixed draws

Agree!! One of the best sport routes on the continent. Never too hard, but very sustained, and always interesting. Totally stellar rock.

this and Technosurfing in Rumney are the best 5.12b's I've come across.

Best 5.12, let alone 12b, I've been on. Amazing climbing, beautiful atmosphere and you are staring over at Table of Colors! Gorgeous climbing! :)

Absolutely stunning rock climb. The five ten finish is frustratingly hard on point.
