Reliquary, 5.12b. June, 2007


Head up ready for an adventure with large and slopey holds. Not the typical jug fest. You can find kneebars to recover while you get pumped on this steep climb.

6 bolts to chains

What a great route! I enjoyed this even more than tissue tiger and felt it was a bit harder. I wouldn't put it at 12c but it felt harder than some of the other 12c's I've done or been on at the red.

Just to add to description and some beta (don't read if you don't want to know): bouldery start getting past the second bolt on some slopey pinches with both a left or right variation depending on which hand goes in the two finger pocket before you return to the sea of chalked pockets with mostly jugs if you guess correctly or depending on the state of tic marks. Many knee bars possible but the key one for most people is at the 5th bolt with a sideways right knee that is no-hands for some and allows for recovery and an easier reach through the high crux moving onto that slopey rail.
