Description

Forces starts downhill from Elliptical Seasons just after an ominous looking, large, loose flake. Angle up a ramp to the right, and then cut straight up into the roofs and corners. The rock was a little sandy in the first year and cleaned up well, although a small stretch to start may give some pause. Powerful reaches around the corners and the steepest line on the wall distinguish Forces. A second reachy 5.12 crux on thin hands at two thirds height dumps you out to the left for a moderate romp to the anchors. Knock off a single star for the break above the last crux that lowers the continuity factor. However, two powerful 5.12 cruxes will leave you happy for the casual ending. A warning, stay on your feet. While considerably easier at the top, Forces runs out a long way to the anchor. Beautiful climbing overall.

Protection

QDs only. 12-14 quickdraws takes you to the top of this 90 foot route. Bring something for the double bolt anchor at the top.
