Barlow on Teardrop
Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Start on 4th class climbing to the first bolt. Slightly overhanging from there. Mid eleven climbing starts immediately after clipping the first bolt. Interesting movement on sidepulls.

Technical crux starts after clipping 6th bolt. Redpoint crux is after clipping 7th. Pull through that and it's jugs to the 8th bolt and anchors.


Location 

Noticeable fixed line of draws that goes straight up above the 4th class bottom. Jug Abuse (also fixed draws) branches left after 3rd bolt.


Protection 

8 bolts with fixed draws. Two anchors with draws up top.

Jumped on this route for the first time yesterday. I really enjoyed it. We warmed up by taking three laps on the lower half (5.11 climbing) before starting to project it. After the big jug at the midpoint, there is probably only one more contrived rest. I'm going to have to really dial down my footwork on this one to get the redpoint. I managed to do all the moves, now I just need to link it all up.
