Description

Southern Cross is a spectacular line on great rock. It's difficulties are compounded with spicy runouts on your smallest gear. The insipient crack no longer contains bushes but also no longer has a fixed pin.

Location

This route is to the left of the wide and nasty Taxdor. It shares anchors with a sport climb to its left.

Protection

While you may get in pro up to a #3.5 camalot be sure to bring triples of the smaller than finger size cams. Offset nuts and micro stoppers will come in handy too.

Photos

I added an anchor to the top of this route. Previously you had to traverse over to the Child Abuse anchors. Anchors are just to the left of the natural finish to the climb. You cannot see them from the ground as they are on top of the pillar where it starts to cut back. The anchors work well for Harvest that is around the left side of the arete as well.

Hopefully this will bring some attention to these routes as it was otherwise very difficult to climb them without some serious shenanigans. Apr 11, 2016
