The Price of Fear

Michael Stearns wagering on The Price of Fear 5.10...
An airy, spectacular, and dramatic conclusion to either Super Pooper 5.10b or The Flakes 5.11c. Thin, technical slab climbing along the lip of a massive dihedral high on the Upper West Face Bulge.
From the top of P2 on Super Pooper, traverse out right along a thin crack to gain a vertical crack that varies from fingers to hands. Above the crack, 3 closely spaced bolts protect difficult slab climbing with big exposure.
A must do!
A variation finish for both Super Pooper 5.10b and The Flakes 5.11c.
Standard rack, 3 bolts.

I can't believe that it has taken this long to get this route on mtn project. It will be interesting to see if it increases traffic on the route. The Price of Fear is quite fun and not as bad as the name suggests...

Standup Flake to Super Pooper to Price of Fear is one of the better 5.10 linkups on Tahquitz

Very fun pitch with cool position, pretty easy for 10c Idyllwild slab, with pro right where you need it. If this is near your limit, don't let the rating dissuade you.
