The Bad: October 2010


Wholly slick start! Difficult for the grade, this almost becomes a ten after the crux...which is the start. Quite the fight, this "warm-up" is still worth the tick. Enjoy pockets and edges up a steep face with some difficult to read sections. This was the first and is probably most climbed line in the area.


On the left-side of the Scorched Earth area, this is one of the 1st routes you'll come to after the approach. It has obvious polished feet.


Nine bolts to an anchor.

A stick clip might be a good idea for this one.

Hard for the grade for sure. Cool start but MAN is it slick.
