Description 

Both Reckoning and Pure Joy share the same start. Begin in the easier crack, then climb the very nice finger crack on the right side of the broken column (left is Pure Joy, .10c). Rock quality is very good, as is gear.

Location 

Approach the west side of the Bend. This route and numerous other very nice cracks are located in the same general area. You could spend an entire day climbing just these routes.

Protection 

Pro to 1.5 or 2", emphasis on smaller gear. Bolts/chain anchor at the top. Rappel with 60m rope (50 would likely make it).

Fabulous route. Locker fingers with feet you need to occasionally work for.... endless awesome gear is the bonus. Do this route! It is every bit as good as its neighbor Pure Joy.

Gear: heavy on small to green camalots, with one #1 and #2 camalot. I placed lots of nuts of all sizes.

Seriously great movement on this climb. The start is okay but once you get to where the cracks diverge, the real fun begins. Continuous finger locks leads to an occasional rest. Great pro is abundant and you will have to work to find good feet every so often. Don't give up until you hit that jug right below the anchors!
