Description Suggest change

Nuclear Decay climbs a face on the right side of an arete. Climbing in the crack in the dihedral to the right is even easier, but not nearly as fun. There are some cool pockets on this route, and offers decent placement opportunities. Just remember that once you sink a piece in a pocket, it is no longer very useful as a hold. For top roping, you can climb a variation on the arete or on the left side of the arete as well.

Location Suggest change

Nuclear Decay is situated between Black Hole Sun (5.8) on the left and Gravitational Attraction (5.11b) to the right.

Protection Suggest change

Standard rack. 2 bolts at the top. Bring long runners for a top rope.
