Austin on the worm


climb a wide crack in a giant left facing dihedral on the left side of the exit gully. Starts in a tight chemney with a hand crack in the back, then turn a bulge and worm your way up the chest width offwidth. Two bolts will be added soon to avoid bad falls.


its on the shelf before you walk around to the amigos


medium to wide gear with bolt anchors at the top.

I TRd the route yesterday. I think it's harder than 9+ and a lead would be difficult without bolts or shaky gear. I'm in for a shot ground up!
