Description

As the name implies, Curl Up and Fly is a punctuated by one big move surrounded by crimpy 5.11 climbing on a slightly overhanging wall.

Location

The route is located at the far left end Jimmy Cliff. This route is the second bolted line to the left of the obvious 90 degree corner in the middle of the crag.

The route really starts on a two-move tall ledge. Rope up on the ground, boulder up to the ledge, tip to left end of ledge, clip your first bolt, and cruise the route. Convienently, the route starts where the ledge ends, making for safe whippahs, should you fall.

Protection

5 bolts with a two glue-in eyebolts for an anchor.

The post-crux part of this climb involves some techy lay backs moves off strange holds, be aware! Keep your head on after the crux, short as it may be this climb doesn't ease up beyond 5.11-. May 9, 2007

i was looking at it today and i saw a big scar where it looked like something had broken off, have any key holds broken off since last time i was on it about 5 years ago? May 12, 2008

Yesterday I utilized some quebecois beta that made the crux feel quite a bit easier. I won't give it away but it makes the route feel much easier than other .12a routes I have tried (peanut man, vallee daze, captain hook, weevil kneevil). Sep 18, 2013

Feels hard (well, maybe not quite .12a hard) to shorties like Chris and I. Certainly not as technical as Vallee Daze or even Weevil. Good route for those who have "pop" in their legs and shoulder. Sep 1, 2014
