Description

Groan Up is a short route, like the rest of the wall, with a few fun, tricky moves.

Climb a short face to a large ledge, then ascend an overhanging corner. The second clip is a little tricky, and you might want to have the belayer close to the wall once making the clip as the rope can nudge you off. Move right onto the ledge, and then the fun part begins. The last move before the anchors is a little different and fun. It gets only one star because of the giant ledge halfway up.

Protection

5 bolts, 2 chain anchor.

The steel biners I left on the chains are still there! I'm really impressed... or maybe this thing just doesn't get climbed that much? Jun 27, 2017

The two aluminum anchor biners are pretty worn, so I replaced them with two black Petzl steel biners today. Please don't mistake them for booty! Dec 6, 2015

One of those climbs where you think you are home free after a few spots of darned hard climbing (especially onsight), then BAM! You can't clip the anchors without some improbable and desperate move. There is nothing more cruel than having the a final crux right before you clip the anchor. Haha.... Oh well, whaddya gonna do? Nov 18, 2008

A bouldery start, then a pumpy overhanging desperate stemfest make this a very hard 11c. Jun 17, 2006
