Description

Sick pocket climbing to a crimpy crux roof up high. Strong digits helps...

High (very high) first bolt adds to the spice. Be careful soloing down low through the choss band (5.8ish).

Location

Just left of the trail split you'll come to a gorgeous arete with some obvious pockets. This is the Psycho Path.

Protection

Draws.

This route is deserving of a better description:

One of the few, if only, routes where you get to pull on two finger pockets.

Begin with a 30ft section of chossy, but somehow solid, rock to get to the first bolt...you can place a number 3 along the way if you're worried about this. From this first bolt, you begin a 3 bolt section of pockets and slopey edges that lead to a dead point to a good iron-patina'd jug. You will clip both the 3rd and 4th (normally a long sling) from this rest. Side pulls and very technical feet will lead you into the meat of the route that begins with a very hard clip however you decide to clip it. No rest and you launch into the crux with small crimps, knee scums and very unfamiliar body positions that ends with a final jump move to the anchor clipping hold.

This route is always dry minus the first 15 feet that takes you to the ledge... Jan 19, 2016
