Description

Although the Lower Gorge features some of the best crack climbs on basalt in the U.S., Full Court Press is an example of one of the many exceptional sport climbs there. As the name implies, the climbing is sustained from the onset. There are many difficult moves with the most powerful being a "cross through" at bolt#3.

Protection

Quick Draws and an optional TCU (blue - orange) or equivalent cam after the final bolt in the seam below the rap anchors. As admonished by A. Watts, stick clipping the first bolt is a wise move.

Stellar route. Contrary to the above, I found numerous good shakes interspersed between the various cruxes. No hands-off stances, but plenty good enough to get it all back. If you're doing the hard moves pumped, you're doing it wrong. While it goes without the a stick clip, it's nice to have. Maybe V1-2 with a poor landing. May 20, 2016

Great route. Hardest move is at the 3rd bolt, but you're most likely to flame out at the 6th from the lack of good rests and numerous difficult moves from the first bolt to the 6th. Very well named. Oct 22, 2014
