Oh My! finish

5.11b/c, Sport,  Avg: 3.4 from 68 votes
FA: M Sprague4/98
New Hampshire > Rumney > Orange Crush

Description

A killer way to finish Lions and Tigers and Bears. It adds a little exposure and a little difficulty and it follows a more natural line.

Start as for LT+B taking the same measures to avoid rope drag. As you finish the rightward traverse rather than switching direction and heading left on the original route continue slightly right and into a nice corner following big flakes up the corner until its possible to get a stance before pulling a few more moves to the chains.

Highly recommended for sure. This finish is the way to go.

Protection

12 bolts to anchors. 60m rope needed to lower.

Location

This is a variation to Lions and Tigers and Bears. As you finish the rightward traverse of that route continue up and right in to a left facing corner (easy to pick out from the ground as it is the more obvious and aesthetic line as your eye follows the route).

[Hide Comment] This route is amazing. The best part is the magical knee-bar just before the start of the Oh my! extension - a total life savior. May 26, 2016
