Texas Chainsaw Massacre
|789 page views|
Texas Chainsaw Massacre begins with a series of good-sized, but shallow pockets. Pockets lead to a stance below two large inclusions and the 1st bolt. Continue up the featured face on edges, cobbles, and an occasional pocket. As the angle of the slab decreases so do the number of pockets, and the footholds and handholds become smaller and less secure. Insecure friction and palming lead to the anchor.
This is the 2nd route from the left side of The Egg Cup buttress. Begin at a series of large shallow pockets.
7 bolts & 2-ring Fixe anchor.

Seemingly well featured - but puzzling steep initial section leads to less steepness but distinct paucity higher up - gotta edge those tiny cobbles and hope they don't blow!

Great route, but a little chossy. The bolts for the climb next to it are annoyingly close though. Definitely not a 5.10b, more like a 5.8... also, only 40-50 feet to the fixe anchors.

Watching Jeff take a 10 ft. whipper onto the 5th bolt was no joke. It was Karen's 1st catch of a lead fall and she did great! No joke.
