Rhythm of the Heat
|597 page views|
Slabby face climb just left of Silent Scream. Unlike Silent Scream just to the right, this section of Pixie Rock is almost completely unfeatured. This is a great climb to slap up a TR and get familiar with JT friction climbing. At the mid point, a crack system slants up and left. Depending on where you move up from the crack, the difficuly of this climb can change by a couple of grades.
The name Rythym Of The Heat comes from a Peter Gabriel song of the same name from his 1982 Security release.
None - free solo or TR from bolts and large gear (long slings necessary)

Hmmm...One of the better songs on Peter Gabriel's 'Security' album.

Pretty sure this is called Rhythm of the Heart, not Heat. Anyway, a climb that demands good balance and footwork, not brawn. A good toprope quickie. The mislabeled sign in front of the rock labels this route as Silent Scream

This is really a lot of fun. My partner and I did a variation of it that makes it slightly more interesting by going to the right of the dark patina once you hit the first horizontal crack. I don't know what it does to the grade when you do that, but it sure make you pay attention. Great fun!
