This is a very classic climb. Very steep and fun!! The .11c rating comes from the first 10 feet of the climb. Then after that, nothing is harder than a .11a.


Second route from the left as you enter the pipeline.

This is way steep but with huge holds. Climb it like an ape. I believe the name of this climb is The Angry Inch. It is the second climb from left. The climb to the left of it is 11d. Nov 9, 2007

I was there with a friend who knew the guy who bolted the route. As mentioned previously the name of this route is "The Angry Inch" and I believe it originally had a rating of 11c. Great climb with a terrific sequence of long reachy moves. Sep 22, 2008

Glad I onsighted this while it was still an 11c- Very fun route. Worth doing.

  • This is the second route from the left in the Pipeline.
  • Throught the swath of chalk on the grading cobble it still seems as though local concensus is 11c as far as we were able to tell.
  • 60 feet is quite generous for the length of the route, this rig is no longer than about 40 feet.

Really fun steep climbing on big, positive but greasy cobbles. Probably easier the faster you move or the better you know the route. On this route probably half or more of the holds that you grab are individual cobbles which is rare. Not so many pockets or pebbly cobble holds as on other routes. Jul 25, 2009

I fell in love with this route! Super fun to work and figure out. The beginning moves are the crux. At the last bolt there's a well hidden hand, but if you cant find it just skip the clip and go for the chains! Apr 21, 2014

Easily one of my favorite 11's in Maple.
Skip the last bolt since it's RIGHT UNDERNEATH(less than 20in away) from the chains.

The hidden right hand at the top is sooooo bomber! Apr 25, 2015

compare this to excavation at the minimum and you don't really have a comparison on quality and grade. I didn't really like many lines at Pipeline and this may be the 'best' one.

Both excavation and angry inch are "classic 11c" climbs but the minimum is good climbing and this climb seems to be like you did a crux and clip the chains as it's over in a minute. I agree with 60 ft being generous and it being about 45 ft. Otherwise you have a really tall and somewhat consistant V0/V1. If you can overhang climb 10d you should be able to finish this short thing. Aug 15, 2015

The pump near the top out was real, at least for me... Holds are all there, big huge jugs and good pockets. People say to skip the last bolt and push to anchor since its right there, but I certainly was glad I clipped that last bolt because I was pumped by the end and barely clipped the mashy hook anchors at the top. Could be because I'm 235lbs and climbed a lot before I did this end of day route though... Nov 8, 2016
