Description

This is the right side elimanate for Thoroughfare . Climb up to a pod and then up the seam leaving holds to the left alone. Climb until forced back into Thoroughfare. Maybe a piece down low and then the gear is the same.

Protection

Maybe a blue lowball by the pod.

This is a very leadable route. For a 12 at DL, the pro is pretty good. Since you climb the crack straight on, it doesn't feel as contrived as it might. Nov 2, 2006

when leading, best to use the piton as your first piece. opportunities below that are seldom, and what you do find is poor and hard to place.

above the piton, i used one blue TCU, two yellow TCUs, one red TCU.

wonderful climb. i just wish it was not an eliminate! Jul 19, 2009
If top-roping this, make sure you keep the anchor a few feet to the climber's right of the finishing crack, otherwise your ropes will get stuck in that crack. Oct 15, 2018
