Description

Sandwiched in between the Leaning Pillar and Anartichoke are two interesting routes that fire up distinct faces and aretes. The right of these is Generica, and it starts in the obvious dihedral. Bear hug the blunt arete but do look around for the feet, it will feel a lot harder until all of the tricks are found. It seemed logical to shift a bit right near the top. Good interesting line.

Protection

Eight draws (for 6 protection bolts and 2 anchor bolts) and a rope.

I can see why nobody has added a rating for this one, as it's hard to know whether to rate the 5.10 variations on either side or the (5.12?) rotten face up the bolt line. Perhaps there used to be some holds that broke off, but the only edges I could find up the middle overhanging face broke off with my fingernails. Interesting trying to figure it out, though, once you get the bush out of your helmet. Apr 20, 2012
