Description

This route was so absurdly good, it just had to be added to the database. A left leaning fingercrack leads to one beautiful fingerlock after another. In an area stacked with quality climbs, this route stands apart. One of many three star routes put up by Andy Fitz and Ed Mosshart.

Location

Pure joy is located to the right of the "Tiers roof". Two fingercracks come together to form a V shape. Pure joy is the crack on the left, and "The Reckoning" (10b) is the crack on the right (also absurdly good).

Protection

.75 camalot and smaller. Eats up stoppers.

Exhilerating! The crack wants to spit you off to the left but hang in there. The pro gets sketchy at up top so save some gas for the end and battle the pump to the chains. Great route. Sep 9, 2008
