Petey G. on the Orchard Wall classic Springboard.


Prefectly Plumline.

Prefect hand-crack. Takes great gear, doesn't wander at all, don't need to extend anything, and it'll make you work until the top.

Awesome tick. This climb gets led frequently.


15ft right of Triple Threat. Follow the hand crack passing over triple threat at 2/3 height.


Standard Rack.

Not a strictly jammable crack. Stellar nonetheless. The description of having to work the whole way is very accurate. Fantastic pro virtually anywhere you want it. A big piece is nice to have for the middle if this is at your limit if you want to bring one up, but you can certainly go without it. Rewarded with a small traverse on great jugs at the top to gain the anchors.

I agree with the great pro part except for maybe the bottom section leading up to that first jug. I know a few a people who ate dirt on this one (yours truly included) getting through that first part. After that it's good clean fun.

It takes small stuff pretty well. I didn't test it, but it seemed good. My buddy whose first crack lead and first .10 trad lead it was sewed the shit out of the bottom with green C3 and blue TCU sized pieces. That was the crux for me right off the ground with the finger laybacking. The bigger part in the middle was no picnic for me either. So good though. One of my favorites on the whole north side now.
