Description

This is a high quality route on the largely ignored Overhung Wall below Sport Park. No chipping or Z-clipping here. This is the 3rd route from the left and climbs out the largest section of overhanging rock. Restful, vertical slab climbing leads to fantastic, jug climbing through the overhang and a crux at the lip (a kneebar is very useful). After pulling the lip, easier slabby climbing leads to the anchors.

Location

This is just to the left of the dihedral that marks the right end of the main overhang.

Protection

5 or 6 bolts to chains.

I didn't heed the advice for pants/kneepads, 'cause I thought I was tough. Turns out I'm not. On my OS attempt the kneebar cut me up enough that on my redpoint burn I taped over it. I recommend pants, kneepads, or being tougher than I.

Fun route! Aug 27, 2011

Can't comment on the knee-bar, but the full-on dyno up with the left from the same holds is big fun .12- at the hardest. Really fun, short line. Jun 19, 2011

When I first did this route, we called this area Surprising Crag... because none of the routes where chipped our over-bolted like the Sports Park, and I hope the routes are still the same way when I did the first ascents. :) Jesse Jun 4, 2010

This climb is awesome. Doesn't look like it gets much traffic since it had almost no chalk on it when we began working it. *Beta* The kneebar crux is really unique, you have to get the body position just right or that next hold will feel too far away.

Wear pants or a pad, even with pants my left knee is all cut up. Jul 30, 2008

This is by far the best climb at Sport Park that I've been on. Please give me a heads up if you have any other recommendations. Awesome roof to a super rad crux at the lip. Jul 27, 2008
