Description

An awkward mantle past the first bolt gains entry into the tiered corner system where jamming skills are a plus. The so-so climbing in the middle of the route is redeemed by the wild and suprisingly exposed feeling crux at the last bolt.

  • The extension to this is called Hysteria (5.12d) 15 bolts to anchors (115').

Location

Located on the far right side of The Alcove and identified as a left-facing corner system that starts up high - this is currently the third route from the right. Some scrambling is required to reach the base, but once there a nice sheltered spot exists to belay.

Protection

6 bolts, ring anchors

Couldn't do last move, but move after second bolt under the first roof was mega funky and enjoyable. A worthwhile climb just for this move! Dec 3, 2015
