The Equalizer has been a test piece for generations, and was THEE hard route to do at the Forks for three decades. This line features bouldery climbing on pretty generous holds, with a dash of decent gear. It’s a strikingly clean line with wide open air.

Start by a large boulder with a bit of face climbing into a small left facing corner. From here stem, slap, deadpoint, and keep your head together. Very sustained and bouldery. Other known leads by Johnny Woodward, John Mattson, Matt Childers, and Ty Mack placing gear on the run. Brilliant and demanding climbing!


A couple of systems right of Paradise Lost.
