Description

This is the route between the first pitch of Werk Supp and the beginning of the fourth pitch of the Bastille Crack. It makes for an excellent day and avoids the line at the bottom of the Bastille Crack. To get to the route: climb the first pitch of Werk Supp to the bolts 5.8+. From the bolts, head west up the ramp with an emphasis on the outside of the ramp. Continue up through a squeeze/overhanging section where a piton marks the crux 5.8. Once through the crux, cross the ramp and set up shop for the fourth pitch of the Bastille Crack. Link the last two pitches of the Bastille for a great day.

Protection

Bring a normal rack; mostly mid-sized pieces. There is an OK looking piton at the crux.

I could be wrong, but I do not remember seeing a piton when I climbed this. Nevertheless, it protected well. Jun 27, 2010
Sorry, I meant "third pitch variation." As a young teen, the third pitch intimidated me for a few years, so I would sneak around the corner to the left and climb the awkward dihedral/slot with the fixed pin. Jun 20, 2005

There is also a ramp system to up or down-climb between the top of P1 of WerkSupp & top of P2 of Bastille Crack. This is distinct from the above described line. The down-climb is useful if you want to bail (rain, hail, whatever) & don't want to leave gear & don't trust a single old pin. It's much easier than 5.8. Jan 22, 2005
