Description

This is Steeeep, the definition of jug-hauling. The start is a little spooky, up mank rock to a dicey looking, balanced block. Make sure your belayer is not directly below, take a deep breath, yard on this block, and keep yarding. This would get two stars except the crux seems to be clipping the lower-off bolts. These are right in the middle of a hard move, which is (for someone with a tiny brain like myself) pretty distracting: Clip and grab, or keep going? Best to pretend they are not there, because there are jugs three or four feet higher.

Protection

Several bolts to a lower-off.

I also agree with Crusher about the anchor "crux" moves. I lead the thing, only to be staring at the anchor bolts holding a tenuous pinch 8 inches from the anchor, for what seemed like eternity, not knowing what to do, only to have no other option than to just fall off. Later, I realized I should have gone on past the anchor to the jugs to clip the anchor. Apr 5, 2015

I'd agree with Crusher's assessment: the anchors are in the middle of the crux. Would've been a better route if the anchors were moved up and another bolt added beneath them. Otherwise, strenous and somewhat inobvious sequences. Jun 14, 2004
