This route is the farthest route on the left side in the Inner Sanctum. It starts up and easy slab (5.5) with one bolt to 4 bolts of unrelenting 5.11c/5.11d. The crux may be tougher (possibly 5.12ish) for shorter climbers. The bulge has great holds, but they are lengthy.


Bolts at least.

Is height dependent. Bolt above last bulge was just out of reach (I'm 5'9" with neg. ape). Had to make hard moves with slab hitting fall potential. Other than this a good route. Jun 10, 2004

A friend of mine who's shorter than you did the second ascent of this route shortly after I first put it up and didn't seem to have the reach dependency issues. Maybe you overlooked a few holds? That rock can be be tough to read. Regarding ledge potential, I worked hard to get all the bolts in just the right spots, and felt pretty confident that given an attentive belayer this wasn't an issue. Sorry if you were a little gripped, but the climbing is continuous, and the clipping holds aren't that great, so anytime you get that combination there's simply no way to get around the tough clips.

BTW, I should have mentioned this earlier, but I'm always one to convey something about the route name: Cinq Cents is one of the superb bottle conditioned ales produced by the Chimay Trappist Monastery, which is the best-known and biggest monastery brewery in Belgium. Yup, another monastic ale reference. Aug 3, 2009
