Description

Best rock in the Coulee?

Worth doing several times, this gem is pure fun.
Start in a stellar 1" hand crack for the first 15 feet before clipping the first bolt and moving onto the face. Use both sides of the column and aretes up to a thought provoking crux move.

Location

Left of Desert Dessert and Jihad obvious crack to bolted face.

Protection

1" cam and 5 bolts to a chain anchor

Though I'm not a huge fan of Vantage column ladder climbs, this is one that I do love coming back to. It has a more serious feel to it and the cruxes depend more on balance than brute strength. Feb 16, 2016

Low jams might be 1" finger stacks but the crack quickly widens to a solid hand jam size, if alone it would probably be 5.9, as would most of the climb with the exception of the single move 10c crux Apr 7, 2014

just putting it out there, 1" is off fingers for most folks, not hands. Mar 5, 2014
