A vicious boulder problem crux leads to fun, reachy and pumpy finish. The rock is solid and a bright, beautiful orange.

When you take the fork at the throne, pass under Quantum Leap and look to your right.

One of the key holds in the crux move has broken off. It was the gaston for the right hand after the undercling. The new sequence felt a fair amount more difficult to me.

Nate-
Ahhh crap, do you mean the sharp gaston with the thumb catch?

thanks for the heads up.

This is the second hold that has broken in the crux section. There is a small graveyard hidden below the climb...

I was actually belaying when the first hold in the crux broke as well. I think I am going to avoid belaying anybody else on this route, I seem to jinx it. If one more crux hold breaks, the difficulty of this climb will drastically jump up.

so you are the culprit!
I need a photo reference to build my voodoo doll.


It's a shame this route keeps losing holds. It's one of my favorite at the throne, and on (supposedly) perfect rock. Guess we will have to keep getting stronger while the route gets weaker.
