Starting up The Dinosaur

Description 

This crimpy number combines an intense crux with enduro jugs on some of the best stone in the country. The business is all about finger strength & pain tolerance with a few tough moves on brutal crimps, though a significant pump, and devious moves keep the outcome in doubt right up to the end.

Begin atop a flat boulder. Long cranks between incut holds leads to a good ledge & shake below the third bolt. Strenuous V6-ish cranks lead to another ledge and a great rest on a creaky & somewhat spooky black rail. Long moves on widening holds lead to a sequential pocket section, followed by more good rests, then a final right-ward traverse to the chains.


Location 

2nd route from the left end of the cliff, immediately left of "Wild, Yet Tasty."


Protection 

6 bolts. Considering the boulder, you may want to stick clip the 2nd bolt.
