About to pull the overhang on The Rajah, 5.12c R f...

Description 

An impressive route.

Climb directly up the wall below the overhang, with a long reach to gain the friable breaks and pockets below the overhang.

Place the gear and commit to the moves around the overhang. The moves around the overhang are both difficult and insecure. Getting into a standing position above the overhang is the crux, but a cool head is needed to finish on the slabby wall above.


Location 

Center of the wall left of Don't Let Go.


Protection 

Cams in break below the overhang.

It is possible to place a #3 friends in the pocket above the overhang, but while this makes it a bit safer (it isn't bomber) you'll miss out of a crucial hold.
