Description

Near the middle of WW1 Aborigine takes a steep line just on the edge of a dihedral. It features a low sequency crux that leads to a few pumpy moves and a great rest. Then you shot up to the anchors with a mini crux after cliping the last bolt. If your not tired continue on fixed draws on the extension.

blow it going for the final jug on this one at the end of a hot and humid day, the subsequent 30 footer you'll take will get you going for the hike out. Aug 7, 2010

Excellent introductory route to the World Wall, and for climbers new to the grade. As Keenan stated above, Aborigine has an excellent heartbreaker move right at the finish with a pretty substantial whip if you miss the end jug. Clean falls all day long at this place, awesome crag to get that power endurance up and
through the roof. Jan 30, 2017

I agree with Marc that it's a good intro route for getting a feel for the center of world wall, especially if you're solid at the grade. It's a poor choice to onsight/project for someone new to the grade. Getting to and above the 3rd clip is a bit hard to read and can result in a bad fall if the catch their ankle on the block (watched it happen the other day).

Personally I think megatherion is a better project for someone new to the grade. The climbing is all cruiser up to the 7th bolt, falls above are totally clean, and it isn't the warm up for everyone else at the crag. You have all the time in the world to work on that one without being in anyone's way. Jul 7, 2017
