Description

This is a great sport climb. Gain the arete (way hard!) and climb straight up making the crux on tenuous, reachy moves on perfectly small crimps to a thank God jug. Then stem acrobatically to the chimney feature, and finally a run up the slab to the anchors. This was impressively bolted on the lead.

Location

This is to the left of P.O. Crack.

Protection

Quickdraws, 4 or 6 bolts.

FA. Doug Berry, ground up, hand drilling. The lower part of the climb feel down. It is now easier to climb up, clip 2nd bolt then go down/over to corner on right and up, staying at 11+. The moves going from second bolt over right to arete will increase grade. Sep 7, 2007

Oh, bolted on lead. I can see now, why the bolts not at the clipping stances. Kinda sucks. Like a lot of routes at Ophir, this one needs a rebuild. Get with the modern world, man! Jun 12, 2011

The bolts are where you need them, in the Ophir style. It's 5 or 6 bolts for a 60-70 foot climb. All the business is between bolts 2-4. May 26, 2017
