Description

Balls to the Wall is the leftmost climb on Gnar Wall.

It's hard to write good El Rito descriptions, especially for moderates. Climb the vertical cobble-y face. (Helpful?)

Fun moves, especially up high where it gets steeper.

5 bolts to 2 bolt anchor

GREAT ROUTE. Definitely the hardest route on the wall for lead. the first 3 bolts are good for 5.9+ leaders. Going to the fourth bolt is the crux and the most fun part. I wouldn't start with this route though. Oct 12, 2015
