Pushing Up Daisies
|699 page views|
Pushing Up Daisies is the very nice extension of the classic Flour Power that extends the route to where it always should have gone, the top of the cliff.
The difficulty starts once you leave the comfort of the anchor clipping hold of Flour Power and involves pulling a crimpy boulder problem leading to a jug. From the jug you have to figure out how to get to a jug system up and left. There are at least 3 different ways to get there, each presenting their own difficulties. Once on the system, another crimpy section is encountered leading slightly right to a final sprint up the last headwall. Try not to fall off the next to last hold, the final hold is huge and so worth it.
There is some glue on at least 3 of the crimps but this doesn't detract too much.

Bolts and Fixed Draws. I lowered off from the anchors with a 70m rope. Note sure about a 60m.
