Angelina Kalianda on Primal Sledge (5.10), The Rui...


A fun, overhanging jug haul. If you're not hanging on a bucket, you missed something. Very well bolted. The only concern I had on this route was that some of the rock is reinforced with glue. And I don't mean small holds, I mean big chunks of rock. I guess it has held for 10 years now. Seemed pretty solid to me, but make sure your belayer wears a helmet. How solid is rock glue?


This is the 2nd to last route as you head all the way down to the right end of the climbs.


7 or 8 bolts, shuts

Well bolted and fun. After the roof (about half way up the route) the climbing becomes much easier to the chains.

Super fun climbing on big jugs make this route unique to the wall. While stepping out left to the neighboring wall eases the difficulty and is the natural line, avoiding it makes for more enjoyable climbing.

This one is a jug haul, not much technique required.
