The lower tricky crux of Triathlon.
Auburn Quarry Open Daily 'til Sundown! MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Start to the right border of the large overhang on the Wreckage Wall. Start up an easy bolt to a vertical low crux on smooth rock. Hit the middle portion of the climb following larger holds to a techy microcrux as the wall steepens. Once over the bulge, easier climbing to the anchors.


Location 

This is the 1st route to the right of the main overhang on the Wreckage wall.


Protection 

8 bolts

Last bit of the sustained section crux?? is height dependent. I'm 6'2'' and can reach the hold with good feet instead of having to smear on the face. Makes this a lot easier I think... Then again, I've never done it the other way...

Cool route + fun moves! Fourth bolt is funky to clip, could be lower?
