Description

A classic jug haul. Some will argue the grade (ie they think it is soft, it may be only 12d but I give credit to Porter and honestly once you have any route dialed it does feel easier...) Tough crux at 2nd bolt with many different sequences, most people use a right knee bar to pull through. Grab anything smaller than a handful for the next 50 feet and look again...jugs abound. Pumpy redpoint crux above 8th bolt, then a fun roof.

Location

Coliseum Wall, Summersville Lake

Protection

11 bolts, all but the first one is fixed.

The Crux perma draw is frayed and has sharp bristles sticking out. Someone has looped and clipped the draw to the bolt, while donating a quickdraw to hang from the bolt for clipping. The route is still climbable, but it may be worthwhile for someone to hike down the equipment to replace or remove the old perma. 1 day ago · Temporary Report
