BETA PHOTO: Curses! The Curse!


there are two main cruxes with several little moves in between (as well as some much needed resting positions). it would be a proud onsight for even a strong 12 climber as the cruxes are not easy to read.


the route is two lines up from landscaping. taking the trail up to club mex there is a rock the has the name (the curse) and an arrow pointing to it. its also written on the wall..


12-14 draws..

A fun route on pretty good rock but very easy for the grade. Even onsight I thought it was around 11c.

11c would be an old school rating but for the new school of grading were 5.15 exists and all new crags are graded by, 12a for sure. The crux moves are a v3 or 4 boulder problem with technical moves. Great rock on this one for sure.

Fun moves, and a nice on-sight challenge as there is very little chalk on the route as of Jan 2016.
