Description

This has got to be one of my all time favorite sport climbs in Elevenmile Canyon. Interesting and fun movement up a wall that continues to get steeper as you go. Fight the pump at the top and go for it. Good clean fall if you get burnt off.

Location

Continue past the super steep and difficult climbs for 30 yards, and look for a black water streak on the top of grey rock. It is the most obvious route up the face. This route is between Dad Speaks Parley and Dan Speaks Darrly

Great climb. Known as 10+ in the original guide- and I agree(climbed it many times through the years). This is not an .11a It takes sequence, strength and a bit of endurance- but definitley just a hard .10 A must do. So is Dan speaks Darly- now thats an .11 Jun 9, 2009

The clipping hold for the 5th clip is loose, the hold has been glued once before and may need to be pulled off in the future. The climb can be done without it, it just makes the clip probably the hardest move on the route. Oct 1, 2016
