Climbing reopened after flood MORE INFO >>>


Established ground up on sight. Features airy climbing, good pro and a subtle body tension crux. Once it cleans up a bit more should settle at two stars.

Sign of the Cross begins with either Foxtrot or Crazy Fingers and then joins Tango for 20'. Where Tango moves left at the 3" under cling feature continue straight up into a series of solid finger locks and then grapple with a block like feature to gain easier terrain. The original finish moved left to the last 15' of Tango due to nightfall. The direct finish, added later, is preferred.


Above Crazy Fingers in the Parallels Area. Start via either Foxtrot or Crazy Fingers. Rappel from a slung tree 70m to the ground or 60m to top of Parallels.


SR w/ emphasis on small/medium nuts and double set finger sized cams.
