Peter Adamson on Pipe Dreams


Start left of the Trotsky Corner at a thin seam with pins. Climb up this seam until it ends and fire the shield above. Another brilliant Bob Parrott Route.


Small seam left of Trotsky corner


Pins, Small cams, wires

Bob will be psyched to see this at 12B. I think was 11C when I did it.Anyway a real good route with great pro.

Hilarious. I've always heard it called .12a. It's certainly considerably harder than High Wire, which is probably .11bish, no?

This is such a great route. Pins are solid, I tested a few of them, especially the one at the crux ;-)
