TR'ing the Condor

Description 

This is one of the better climbs of Indian Cove and one of the classic stem problems of Josh. Other notable stemming corners include Coarse and Buggy (5.11a), Wavecrest (5.11c), 29 Palms (5.11d), Scary Monsters (5.12a) and Warrior Eagle (5.12b). Of course there are others but these typify their grade and have excellent moves on high-quality rock.

Originally done with fixed pins which are now missing; without pins this may deserve an "R" rating, so be careful.


Location 

This, the namesake route of the crag sits all by itself on the west face about 50 yards right of and around the corner from The Falcon. It is a striking left-facing corner in dark rock than leans left as well.


Protection 

Many thin wires (RP's,HB's) and gear to 3" for anchor
