|Torture Machine Area
A suberb mid-length route that features two distinct crux sections - the lower one with it's balancy, steep slab in the orange section and the upper one with strenuous liebacks and underclings as you fight the pump to the anchors on huge holds.
An area classic for the grade and one that should be on any climber's ticklist with it's varied climbing, stellar rock and thrilling exposure.
Up the orange streak between Adrenaline and Technicolor Tango.
11 bolts, double ring anchors

Fun Fun. I thought the hardest part was clipping my gear into the two-bolt anchor! The holds were all there, and pretty big the whole way. Totally fun climb though, get's the adrenaline going.

Classic climb, one of the best at the quarry especially in the 10 range. May seem a little harder at first but just find the good holds, there's always one around.

I wouldn't call it a jug haul, but also not thin. Plenty of good rests and well bolted.

Got on this today. It was a really fun sport route and made my first trip (today) to the Quarry a good one. Only crux is through the orange streak. After that is just a pump factor.

Will a 60m rope be long enough to rap off this route?

Great climb, but unfortunately the anchors (rappel rings and chain)are covered in rust--as of 9/1/14.
