Call of the Granite 5.12+ 7c 28 IX 27 E6 6b C2  North America : Canada : ... : West Main Wall
A note regarding the grade, there are 2 ways of climbing this route either 5.12+/C2 or 5.11/A1. A must do classic for the big wall connoisseur and definitely the largest completed project in the Eldred. Wow. Four seasons of work produced this very rad, twenty-three pitch, free climbing extravaganza. Hard but well protected climbing takes you up and through the overhangs of the scoop. Redpointed with one aid pitch on “easy 5.13 terrain” and one pre-placed bivy. Awesome....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
