Description

A Joe Brown tour-de-force and a must-do while visiting.

Easily at first up to beneath and slightly right of the corner crack, now the fun begins; somehow gain the corner and jam/lieback up it to the overhang. Go through the overhang (crux) to easier climbing.

Location

Left of the big roof of The Sloth, a crack runs up a left facing corner and through a small overhang.

Protection

Nuts and cams.

5.9 just doesn't describe this route - I have a lot of history with this one, a love/hate relationship I suppose. Got badly spanked on my first attempt, in those days it was rated "VS" . Nov 23, 2007

Maybe it's just that my jamming is a bit rusty, but I definitely found the bulge beneath the roof to be the crux. The roof itself was gymnastic, but pretty straightforward. Jul 8, 2013
