David sticking the crux and getting the F.A. of To...


Topical Rush is the most bad ass sport climb on Mt. Elden. 50 feet of overhanging and featured dacite is a rare find in the Flagstaff area. The crux move down low is HARD and pinkie intensive. After the crux, a couple moves bring you to a decent rest. Crank through intense bouldery moves on some of the coolest holds I've ever found on Elden, then execute a big lunge to the top of the wall. Like all the routes on this wall, be sure to top out, or it doesn't count. Incredible climb!


Obvious line right of arete.


Fixed draws and anchors.
