Access Issue: Seasonal Closure - 2018 Update Details

Description

This has steep face and slab climbing with positive and sharp edges throughout. It is a bit reachy in spots and will test your footwork and some unconventional body English.

The third bolt may seem far away, but there is a comfortable clipping stance, and the fall is long but safe. The climbing and angle will ease off once you pass this bolt. This ends at a two bolt anchor on the traversing ledge of P1 of South Face Direct.

It looks like this route could be a pretty cool start to Corinthian Vine.

Location

The obvious, three bolt route left of Boot Lead, and twenty feet right of Gill Crack.

Protection

3 bolts. 2 bolt anchor.

Short but fun. It felt more like 12c to me and took a few burns to send. I thought the real trick of the route was getting past the 1st bolt!!! The rest seemed more straightforward to me... nice on a cool, winter day. Jan 29, 2010

Definitely much harder than 12b. I have heard some holds have broken in recent years. Getting past the first bolt seems like the crux. Feb 15, 2018
