Description [Suggest Change]
Shortly before the drainage enters the main canyon from the right at Captain America is a cluster of slightly longer than average routes. Persephone is one of this cluster and is interesting inasmuch as it climbs to something of a distinct "peak" (right, peak bagging at Penitente). Typified by thin edges and a few shallow pockets, Persephone kicks up enjoyable moves on excellent stone. Climbing is largely continouous with no single move uniquely difficult, while most of the moves tick in at 5.10/5.11. Worth a deuce for the stone, the continuity, the rationale pro, and the "peak".
