  • Description 

    This is a fun gear protected pitch on the south face of Blob, directly between Simmer and Shimmer (just right of the red line in the photo below). The Rolofson guide lists this as 5.10R, but we thought this route was no harder than 5.8, at most easy 5.9, with the crux being reasonably well protected. The easier sections of this pitch tend to be runout though.

    The climb starts in a thin crack and wanders over easy terrain up to a steep short left-facing dihedral, just above a pegmatite band. Pulling through the dihedral is the crux, and is protected by a good stopper placement. Continue upward on moderate climbing, converging with the route on the right (and clipping one of its bolts), to a set of anchors.


    Protection 

    Standard rack.
