Description

This route has several cruxes: The first technical crux comes down low with awkward jams and wired body positioning. The upper crux is just a matter of endurance and being able to read it correctly. Good footwork is key as the surrounding wall is slick as piss (like the rest of Schoolroom). I wonder if Greg had fixed gear or if he placed it while leading? Either way a very impressive send for the era.

Location

The location of this route is blatant. It's the only route with a tree at the top AND the only splitter.

Protection

This pitch gobbles the stoppers. Bring lots of medium to large stoppers a set of TCU's and a handsized cam or 2. Slings might be nice
