Description

The crux is found getting off the ground and pulling the lip at the very top of the climb. The climb follow the arete to the right of Unnatural Act. There is a hidden bolt at the top. This is a fun route with some hidden holds and daring moves. A must if you are in the area.

Location

The route follows the prominenant arete on the obvious wall in the lower falls area. The short (45 ft.) wall can be seen from the highway.

Protection

6 bolts to cold shut, chain anchor

I found the start to be the hardest part of the route. Tricky moves on underclings could leave you baffled before reaching the 2nd bolt. Jun 17, 2007

The start of this was the crux - was until it was buried under 10-15 feet of debris (the original 1st bolt is still in place about three feet off the ground). The slab is still the crux on this but it's not a 5.10 route any longer. Mar 19, 2013
