Description

Start at a left-leaning ramp, and follow an obvious seam. Wander up face to the top. There is a small ledge about half-way up, making this a good route on which to practice "multipitch".

Location

Just across the cul-de-sac from T.P. and Hanky on the Enterprise Wall, at a left-leaning ramp and crack.

Protection

PG.

BEWARE!

One of the boulders on top moves if you start really testing it. Be careful when slinging boulders on top. I used a 60 foot static rope and extended with two double length slings around trees. May 24, 2017

The route called "Genuflect" in the guidebook (climbers right of the "Genuflect" listed on this website) is also a fine climb. Of course, which is the original "Genuflect", I couldn't say. Still, the guidebook version is about a 5.6 with good protection. There are a few small trees on the way up, but they don't get in the way too much. Jul 24, 2012
One of my favorite routes at PK. The gear is totally fine. The anchor up top can be the oak tree 40 ft back or the pair of boulders (one on each side, about 15-20 ft back). Either setup needs 50 ft or more of rope/webbing. If you're there, sample the face about 6-10 ft left of Genuflect for some nice 5.7ish moves. I call this "Genu-Left". Sep 16, 2010
