Description Suggest change

One of my top five ORG routes. Perfect rock, sustained, intricate climbing and a unique belay, nearly in the river, combine for a memorable sport pitch.

The very right side of the Social Platform. In the past one would climb down a man-made rock wall, then traverse above the river to a scaffolding where the belay was established. Note: the route was put in before the river was restored and the original start is now underwater. Now, this route starts off the retaining wall and climbs the arete to the left side of roof. Traverse right to rejoin the original Santana, 19 bolts and 80 meter MANDATORY (close your system w a knot). One anchor total on route, at the top of Abraxas Finish. Clip 2 chain draws while lowering off to the left to facilitate getting back to ledge and keeping your rope dry. The upper cruxes are somewhat atypical for the gorge -- off vertical technical face moves with a 10d crux near the end.
