The route climbs the overhanging crack.

Description 

A great route on the same wall as a half dozen similar sport climbs. This one just takes nuts though, not bolts... Start up the crack and offset with a few odd locks and jams to pass allow crux then toss in stoppers at will and cruise to the anchors above on big pockets and dishes near the crack. I ran into Greg in the mid 90's when I was on a road trip and he asked: "I hear they are giving that thing 5.11a these days? Is that true?"
"Well, yes they are..." I responded. "What did you give it?"
"It's a 10." Was Greg's reply.

What is it really? You decide for yourselves.


Location 

Approach via the standard trail to Roadside and stay right. Shortly after passing a group of steep, clean sport routes (AWOL, Dragon Slayer, etc...) you will come upon a right-leaning steep crack with huge pockets around it. That is Synchronicity.


Protection 

A light rack of stoppers and a few SLCD's if desired.
