P.H.D. (5.10c), 8000 Foot Crag


This enjoyable route starts on the far left side of the face and features enjoyable moves up a slightly overhung face with positive holds. The first bolt is kinda high above a bad landing, so a stick clip may be prudent for shorter climbers.

Sidepulls along opposing aretes and edges work up the face to a hidden jug just past the second bolt. Continue up and left into an awkward flared, left-facing dihedral, pull a small roof and finish up a short section of easy face to anchors.

A bit dirty in the corner system, but the overall quality of the climbing and the novel moves make it easy to overlook this detail, and with more traffic this will only get better.


5 bolts, open shuts
