Description

Just right of Boulder Quartz System is a thin crack leading up to an overhanging right-facing corner. This is Counting Sheep. Placed small gear and climb up nice moves to the start of the overhaning corner. Clip bolts and make a series of strenuous moves up into the corner. Gain a ledge and the two-bolt anchor.

Protection

Small to mid-size gear protect the lower crack. Three bolts protect the upper crux section.

Fun climbing to an intimidating move at the roof (second bolt). Go for it, because it is well protected and there are jugs above. Sep 29, 2003

Good mixed climb. Bottom 2/3 eats stoppers or cams. Good fun. If the trad line wne the whole way, it would be of a more continuous style and thus a better climb, or the same may be said if the top 1/3 of sport were more continuous, but neither of those is what nature gave us, so the extended nature of the two combined offer the best option.THe climb has a single crux of ~10+/11- climbing and then a balancy move up top, where a tiny TCU can add 1 pcs pro (if you are squeemish) but the fall would be safe anyway.

Borderline 2-stars. I likes it, but the bottom still neads some cleaning.

Otherwise 5.10... but for a "one-move-wonder" 5.11a crux. Jul 21, 2003
Underappreciated but a bit overrated: 2 star quality, 1 move 5.11-,SK. Dec 2, 2002
