By virtue of its grade, it has always been *the* warm up at the area. Mostly good holds on a slightly steep wall. The crux is probably just an endurance problem for most climbers, so it's a good one to "go for it" on.


Continue left on the main Sky Bridge Wall past several popular lines including the obvious line "Super Dario", then continue a few meters more past the unpopular "Grunge Face" to the left end of the main wall just before a chimney and corner (Fungus Fantasy) and the turn in the wall to the its more westwardly aspect. A line of 7 bolts marks this steep climb on good holds.


7 bolts to a bolted anchor

[Hide Comment] Very fun, straight forward route. A move or two (for this shorty) to get established between first and 2nd bolt; keep the faith, it's all there. Great warm up. Oct 24, 2018
