Rousey pulling through the hard stuff on No Go Cra...


Climbs the flaring short crack above the lower overhang. Start a few feet left of Balcony Center going up the black face. Engage the crack and sloping edges (crux) up to the balcony. Finish up the left side of the balcony.


Standard Blue Mounds toprope, long slings may be helpful.

Trad leadable. Runout but easy to the overhang. Don't expect to sew it up.

Does anyone know if this thing has ever seen a true ascent on lead?

I am sure this has been led. Reed told me leading this was one of the last things he did in BMSP. Honestly, not that hard of a route once you know the sequence (assuming it isn't muggy;P) the crux is easily protect-able, and I think some piece near the jug after the crux would protect the mantle. Classic BM style headpoint.
