Description

Start in a shallow groove which protects with a medium stopper and then 0 Metolius TCU. Mantle out of the groove and follow easy rock to the base of the large left facing corner that makes up the bulk of Genesis. Stem and jam your way up the fingers to hands corner to a two bolt rap anchor on a sloping ledge. This route continues up from here, but most climbers only complete the first pitch.

Location

Genesis is the furthest right hand route on the Church Wall. It is located at the top of the approach gully. The bulk of this route climbs a large left facing corner system.

Descent is by rappel from a two bolt anchor.

Excellent, albeit short route! Left a couple of lockers at the chains for easy return to the base, please don't swipe 'em. Dec 29, 2017

I brought a 0 (master cam) to protect the first moves, but then all I used were doubles of .5-.75 and singles from 1-3. Fun route! Apr 26, 2016

Does the 2nd pitch need an extra bolt still? I would go up there and put one in as well as trundle everything off of it with a crowbar. Mar 6, 2012

The second pitch is good. If anything it suffers from neglect. We trundled off a few loose chunks. As of now it only has one bolt at the anchor. Jan 31, 2011
