Description

This a fun, steep crack climb with good gear. The crux is at the bottom, but there is good fun to be had the whole way. It is a little bit grotty, but don't let that dissuade you.

Rolofson's guidebook rates this 11d, but we found it easier than some easier rated climbs we did at Primo Wall.

Location

1 set of nuts, cams from green Alien to #1 Camalot with doubles up to #0.5 Camalot. There are fixed anchors for rapping.

Protection

Semi-Automatic is the obvious crack/corner on the right side of the Armory.

Considering that this is a traditional route and climbs very differently than any 11 or 12 sport route at the Primo area, I have to disagree with the description above - it feels very much like 5.11+. The entrance crux moves are weird, very difficult, and very good once figured out. The upper 5.10 climbing is great stemming and steep climbing on good holds. Protects very, very well without nuts. A single set of TCUs or C3s and single cams up to #1 Camalot is sufficient. Oct 2, 2014
