Description

What a fine route! Sometimes its hard to appreciate a good moderate route because perhaps the thrill of victory on an often tried send is missing, and most of us fixate and dream of returning to see who we are only when a challenge is upon us. With Incline Club, it is a pleasure instead to understand that why we climb is joy.

Start in a right-facing corner just uphill from Strange Science. Climb the corner, clipping two bolts, to the top of a pillar. You now have a full view of the slab. Climb up and right to the top of the slab, following a nice line of incut holds.

You can lower from a 2-bolt anchor on the face, or continue a little higher to a second 2-bolt anchor on a ledge and belay from here, if you want to bring your partner up to the top. The upper anchor doesn't have rap rings; rap from the lower anchor or walk off to the right.

But three stars for a *moderate* sport route, I thought to myself? Yeah; when you dream of high position on perfect holds and good protection, with plenty of challenge at arms reach, this one is worth going back to...more than twice.

Protection

8 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.
