Description

This route shares the bolt anchors with the Javelin, 5.11a, which is a beautiful splitter hand crack in an overhanging wall. Cello follows a left-facing corner system to the left of the Javelin, which is about 75 feet from the mouth of canyon on the left wall.

The crux start is quite overhanging, and is climbed with a mixture of sidepulls, underclings, and jams. Fiddling in good gear at the start is tough, so get an idea of the pieces you will need before you start out. After pulling the bulge with a finger crack, continue up the left-facing corner to a bolt anchor.

Protection

SR, extra finger-sized cams.

Really fun route. A step or two easier than Javelin. Jul 28, 2016
