Description

Fine climbing and a good old school route. Runout is least of worries if you can do the crux. Climb crack in corner to end, then left to crack (5.11) up to bold face moves (5.10 PG). There may be cold shuts @ 100', these were not there in '86 when I lead it.

Location

Left of the start of Castor & Pollux the is a short right-facing corner.

Protection

brass nuts, stoppers, small camming units, ball nuts helpful.

hmm. I remember the runout being through the crux? PG13 is pretty kind as well R? Mar 25, 2008
I top roped this route this past Friday and thought it was hard for the grade and that it would be a desperate lead. Hats off to Herb Laeger, leading this thing in 1975! World class for the time period and BOLD! Oct 3, 2011

As I remember, small wires, RP 2s and Stopper 2s at your feet while you do the crux. Pro below that another 7' down. After the crux there was a hidden 5 Stopper or you ran it out to the undercling. You were about 10-15' above your pro when you got to the undercling. Think it would be R in most areas. Jan 27, 2015
Just a heads up- I managed to fix a small brassie right after the crux while bounce testing it. I did not fall on it and I'd be a little hesitant to (it's a very odd placement). Don't put all your trust in that thing, and happy climbing. Dec 1, 2015
