Booze and Broads

5.9+, Trad, 100 ft,  Avg: 3.4 from 36 votes
FA: Jim Corbett, Stewart Coffield - 1988
Georgia > Lost Wall

Description

One of a handful of true must-do routes at Lost Wall, Booze and Broads is a great corner climb. If the strenuous boulder-problem start doesn't leave you out of breath, the stemming corner and roof traverse will.

Start at an overhang under the big corner. Pull difficult roof moves (a spotter and early-placed protection is really a good idea) into a hand crack and muscle your way up to a stance. Follow the right-facing corner to a big roof, then traverse right to a corner and up to the top.

Location

Starts 15' left of Pop Quiz, just past trail marker #3. Rap from a tree at the top.

Protection

Mostly medium cams and tricams; build a gear anchor.

After traverse at roof I thought I was done....not. The pine tree in center all the way on top is your belay. A lot of loose rock in top portion as well

[Hide Comment] Does anyone remember the single rap bolt at the top of the dihedral? It was chopped about 5 years ago. Good thing, it was sketch. Jan 6, 2007

[Hide Comment] I chopped it with the FA (Pappy Corbett) in the late 90s or 2000. The guides used it as part of a TR set-up for the hordes. That way, they didn't have to do the fun traverse finish. Mar 31, 2007

[Hide Comment] Did the brass balls finish today. Pretty fun, but also pretty dirty. Lots of briers and loose rocks at the top Jun 9, 2016
