Slave to the Grind
|1,651 page views|
Immediately right of Glitter Gulch, Slave to the Grind starts with a long reach to a rail. Steep face climbing with a tricky crux around the third bolt. Climbing eases towards the top. Although given an 11b rating in the Brock guidebook, I felt it to be closer to 11c.
7 bolts to 2-bolt anchor.

Like a harder version of Glitter Gulch. Fairly sustained, the climb just gets harder as you go up and the wall tips back. The holds are all fairly good if you can get the correct body position; like Glitter Gulch the abundance of large feet will save you from the pump!

Done this one dozens of times over the years with beta that always felt .11c, watched my friend do it today, and after trying his beta, it felt .11a-ish at the lower crux. The upper wall keeps the grade at about .11b.
This route and Sister of Pain are easily the best routes on the wall.
