Description

Elation is two routes left of Endless Bliss and just to the left of a tree near the base of the wall. Each pitch is solid 5.9, yet the two pitches are wildly different in character. This is one of my favorites at Gunshow.

P1. Begin by climbing a vertical, blocky face to anchors on the slab above. This is suprisingly interesting climbing which looks so-so from the ground, and is also somewhat inobvious and tricky.

P2. Head up the slab to the anchors above. I think the moves on this slab are better than anything on Endless Bliss, and are fairly continuous.

It would be possible to combine these in a single ptich, but I suspect rope drag would be an issue. Try to keep your ropes out of the tree when you rap.

Good, steep climb with lots of interesting features that feels solid within the 5.9 grade, unlike the many over-graded climbs at Exit 38. Slightly overhung at the beginning makes for clean falls for a novice sport climber, unlike the many slabbier routes of similar grade at North Bend. Good route for novice sport climbers who want an opportunity to push towards steeper climbs. Jul 27, 2014

I assumed this route would be a total jug fest but It surprised me. It started raining so we only completed the first pitch. Fun intermediate route. Apr 24, 2012
