Description

Starts left of Crimp Chimp from the same belay platform across the stream. Fun sustained crimping, a good warmup for the fingers for the harder routes on the Main Wall.

Protection

4 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor

I bolted this route shortly after crimp chimp and named it "Tendon bendin'" because of the smallish crimpy holds. After having not climbed it for a few years [I think] the route still holds up to its reputation of hurting your fingers on those little incut holds! Super steep and classic! Jul 24, 2008

This climb's a tougher version of Crimp Chimp, steep and relentless with no distinct crux. Despite a difficult 2nd clip off the smallest hold on the climb (consider stick-clipping this), and a demoralizing finish clipping the chains while pumped, this climb is great if you enjoy steep climbing and is an excellent training route. I'm not sure its much more tweaky or painful than other mid/upper-5.12s at the Dungeon. Aug 8, 2012
