Description

There is a distinct crux midway up the route. But it isn't terribly harder than the climbing before or after.

Fancy footwork will serve you well as you stem and edge your way up this route.

This was my first 5.9 lead and it is a good route to break into the grade. Just make sure you get good gear before moving past the roof.

Location

Walk past New Red River. You can't miss this route as the next obvious dihedral. Rappel from anchors.

Protection

Mostly smaller gear, small cams and nuts work best. There are bolt anchors.

Fun climb, usually wet especially under the roof. Nov 23, 2008

Great climb. Prepare for minimal or no gear after roof. Extend a couple good pieces and just run it out to the anchors on decent feet and an interesting sequence of hands. Oct 18, 2010
