  • Description 

    This is a very worthy variation to the first pitch of Genesis. Start by climbing the first ~30' of Genesis, nearly up to the first fixed pin.

    Bust right out of the dihedral, and step right to gain a thin seam. Climb the seam (poor pro) to where it peters out, then undercling right, and reach up to another thin crack.

    Climb this crack (better pro) up to Le Boomerang, and then cross that route and pull up and left to rejoin Genesis.


    Light rack, include RPs.

    I found that double ropes really helped to maximize the gear on this route. When I got everything in, I felt pretty safe on it; even if the RPs in the first seam blow, the gear in the Genesis isn't far below you.

    It's a very worthy route, both as a toprope variation after doing Genesis or as a lead.
