Description

One of the most consistently steep routes at Broughtons, Closet Nazi offers powerful, exciting climbing. Relative straight forward for the grade, and for a Broughton's route, it is a good 5.12 if you're just getting into the grade. Once through the mid-section the business is over, but the pump might make you fail near the top.

Fun and good. Straightforward but a bit pumpy. My first 5.12!

Edit: Just revisited this one and climbed it a few times. Must say it is a unique route for Broughton. Really fun and athletic movement on grippy rock. What more could you ask for? No especially hard moves but the pump will build if this thing is close to your limit. Sep 7, 2010

Cool, short route. Anyone looking to send their first 5.12 can wire this thing and tick the grade in no time. Dodging the pump and sending comes down to some simple footwork and little bit of hustle! Jul 15, 2013

Great route! Overhung, with good holds for most of it, with some dynamic crux moves in the middle. Managed to send it with just a few burns. Apr 22, 2015

Super fun, pumpy route! Folks aren't lying when they say it's very accessible for the grade.

If you haven't been on this before and its close to your limit, tell your belayer to be on his/her toes as you make the move to the second bolt! Sep 17, 2015
