Description

Feeding Frenzy is another balancey, thin, smedging affair. It shares the beginning with Riptide, until the obvious pocket, then it angles right to the diagonalling crack. For me, this is where the crux was, (the book shows it above bolt 5) as it was tricky and delicate to get established on the crack. Then it climbs to the right of the big hole using better and better holds and edges. It finishes with a very steep, but juggy exit.

Location

Shares the start with Riptide. It has rap anchors over the top on a ledge, so it can be rappelled. Watch the edge though.

Protection

7 bolts, a couple of runners, and if you feel like it a piece for the easy exit. Small cam would work.

Classic climbing for sure. Be careful getting to the 2nd bolt. I think it's the best .10 between the 2 crags. I would agree that the crux is down low versus were the book shows it too be. Sep 12, 2006

Crux is clipping the second bolt. You will deck if you slip while you have all the slack out when clipping the bolt. Not a deadly fall but you could break something. Oct 8, 2014

Crux was getting to the second bolt. First time I came here I thought the start of this route was Crosscurrent and then linked it into Feeding Frenzy after Crosscurrents' 3rd bolt? ( go right where there is a large dirty alcove). This well protected variation is pretty fun and worthwhile. Probably a harder start, but not as sustained as feeding frenzy. May 22, 2015
