Description

Same start as Hypotenuse, but where that climb goes left to the huge corner, this goes up and right, up the scary-looking "Constriction".

Start left of a large, clean, left-facing dihedral. The dihedral curves into an overhang, and at its center is a clean, small crack running the length of it. Move up an easy face, then a steep bulge with great, solid hand holds to crank off of. A huge hold at the top of the bulge signifies the end of the crux, move up and slightly left to finish.

Protection

Long slings for TR, standard rack for trad.

TR'ed it today. It has some interesting moves on it then a grunt-and-hump-the-flake kind o' thing to finish off the crux (at least for me). Watch out for the bat shit. A bit short but maybe worth doing once. There are bolts above this you can scramble to in order to set up the TR. We put one long cordelette with a master point on the bolts and then used another full cordelette (two, actually, for redundancy) in a long loop to extend the anchor point just beyond a sort of finger thingie. Worked well. Sep 10, 2017
