To Hell With The Scarecrows
|237 page views|
A personal favorite, this is a wild, thrilling, mixed line up an arete and steep face. Big and small edges, a thin crux, and thoughtful climbing make this a good, rewarding route. Turn around now? or say, "TO HELL WITH THE SCARECROWS!"
Follow a thin crack protected by cams. Move up and left towards holds on the arete, clip a bolt, pull the crux, and head up and right to a rest at a hairline crack and small ledge. Protect here with wired stoppers and continue up, passing one more bolt. Finish at a chain anchor.
Intimidating from the ground, this is actually a great, well protected climb.
This is the second line in The Planet area, its marked buy a striking and thin, parallel crack.
Micro cams and nuts, two bolts, and a chain anchor.
