Description

B-Line is a long and engaging route, featuring small pockets and positive edges. The challenges come on small pockets at the bottom and the sting at the end, clipping the anchor. The beginning and end are steep and thought provoking, with easier climbing in the middle. While it maybe tempting to TR off the anchor due to the awkward position, please use your own gear for TRing.

This route is in the shade in the morning and the late afternoon.

Location

This climb is on the right edge of the Left Flank, just left of the Java Wall (see photo).

Protection

9 bolts to open shut anchors. Use a 60-meter rope.

Anchor is now a pair of courtesy clips. Thank you to whoever retrofitted the new hardware. Dec 31, 2015

I agree with others. This route is listed as a 10a in the book and consensus here agrees. Why does it say a 9? Oct 18, 2015

Getting past the first bolt is quite a bit more difficult now; perhaps some holds were pulled off? Dec 1, 2014

Fun moderate face climbing. Agree- crux is clipping the anchor and is a single 10a move. Mar 9, 2012

This is a great climb all the way up to the anchors. That last move was easily a 10a move, if not 10b. I had to jump for the last pocket hold to the left and basically hang from it to get clipped in to the anchor. I couldn't reach it at all from the holds to the right. Short folk be aware that the anchors are tough! A great lead otherwise. Used every bit of my 60 yard (yes it's in yards) rope. Feb 6, 2012
Agree that the hardest move was clipping the anchors. Nice rest ledge about half-way up the climb. Jun 3, 2011
