The beginning of My Pink Half of the Drainpipe.


This one pitch route has a wide variety of moves on it. An exciting undercling (5.10A) takes you right to a steep lieback (5.10B). Liebacking and jamming (5.10A) on a steep wall with two cracks leads up to a short undercling and lieback (crux), and easier ground above.


Rappel back down.

I don't know why I thought this was going to be super tough. It was great fun. The feet keep the pump factor down. Gear mostly in the .75" range but a few finger sized pieces are advised.

Rad line, takes some gear know-how to keep the rope drag down. Not too hard either, 10a.
