Description

A prominent crack on the Don Quixote wall. Starts with short wide section that can be liebacked or takes a few good fist jams. Then the first crux of the route is pulling the roof. Although there are good holds and a bomber hand jam above. Jam through good hands and fists up to a hook for a handhold. Next move into some great fingerlocks, a ringlock, and finally a shallow hand jam up top.

Location

Middle of the wall, unfortunately the start has a lot of graffiti on it. You can walk off or build an anchor on bolts and rap. If you toprope be sure and extend the anchor.

Protection

A set of tech friends up to #4 with doubles in 3.5 and 4 is more than sufficient. A more specific list is 2 #4's, 1 #3.5, 1 #1, and a red alien. But the pro is solid all the way up and there are many different ways to protect.

This is my favorite climb at Minne and probably the best trad 10d in the area. I just wish it was a bit longer. Be ready to thrutch your way up if you aren't real comfortable leading 10d. It's burly, pumpy and you seem to have to do alot of moves to only get 45 feet. Jun 20, 2011
