Just right of Gneiss Route is a long (120ft) is a long pumpy line that ends at the same "ledge" where the first pitch of GR ends. This is an excellent, long single pitch route that climbs on largely good rock. Much of what you use for hands felt very rounded and as a result the route picked up more pump factor than its vertical nature would suggest. The route saves a pumpy crux roof until the very end, however, the roof is juggy. There is a little jog right, then left, to gain the anchors. This is a nice long addition, but like everything on the Mission Wall gets very little sun.


Double ropes and 15 draws.

Good call! That sling was like 6 years old or something. Jul 28, 2010

I replaced the sling at the last bolt a week ago. There is now a chain with a fixed biner instead. Please don't take the biner, this protects the final crux very well, if anyone has a problem with this let me know and I will remove it. Jul 27, 2010

The upper roof on the first pitch is a little hair raising, but the sling hanging down helps immeasurably. There is a bolt at your waste for the other cruxes. Watch rope drag. May 15, 2004
