Description

Starting the climb would be the crux although i don't think that this is a true 5.10b, the rating seems a little soft, oh well. Just don't fall after the first bolt before placing your next piece, ground out.

Location

Start onto thin face 6 feet right of varicose, rappel off east side.

Protection

1 bolt, small pro to .75, eyebolt/backup bolt belay.

Not sure this route should get PG-13 rating (especially compared to other PP routes), the crux is right at the bolt and your next piece is not that high up. Fun route! Nov 11, 2014

Greg, I would have to agree, I lead this route and did several hangs at the first bolt. Although myself and the two other people I were with said that the numb fingers from climbing in the cold made it feel like 10d. So we say 10c with warm fingers, 10d rating= numb fingers. Yellow alien fits ok for next piece near the polished melonhead hold. Jan 19, 2007
