Description

This is yet another 3 star route on 2150 Wall. Just to the right of Emperor's Robe (which is pretty much the furthest left route on the wall proper) lies Lime Street. About 80 percent of it is nice delicate, balancy, graceful moves. Then as you head slightly left toward the top, there is a slightly overhanging flake/crack. When you first look at this last section, you will probably write it off as being really easy. I don't know if the lower section tuckers me out or what the deal is, but the last 10 feet always feels surprisingly challenging. Have fun!!

Protection

7 bolts and bolted anchor.

Really enjoyable route. Lots of different types of moves and holds. The last ten or so feet of the rock is more inverted than the rest of the line = gets really pumpy. Very good quality. Dec 30, 2002

Don't get put off by the first bolt (15 ft up or so) the holds are good. Great route, I think I will climb it every time I'm in the area. Jan 12, 2010

I'm reminded again today what a stellar route this is.

Could do without the old SMC hangers on bolts 2-6. But overall, brilliant climbing, right up to the last pumpy section at the anchors. Aug 12, 2013
