Description

If you need to get your friction-climbing head together, this is a good warm-up for some of the harder lines at Currahee. That having been said, Pepsi isn't an easy romp for the grade; like many another slab route, the crux is down low, and there's no pro in the first 40' or so.

Make delicate friction moves through the start, then continue up on easier ground, passing one bolt about midway, and follow a crack to the top.

Location

Starts near the bottom of the descent gully (left end of the Slab Wall), just left of Deprived Child.

Protection

Small gear; one bolt. Bolted anchors at the top. NOTE: This route is longer than it looks, so unless you have a 70-meter rope, take long slings or webbing to extend the anchor for toproping.

Great route for new climbers on top rope. You might even get the urge to free climb this one! Gets SUPER HOT once the sun hits it so get there early and move to the Buzzard Wall around 11. Aug 28, 2014

Great long warm up for beginners and intermediates. Need the full length of a 60m rope with long webbing from the anchors. We had to add 4 feet extensions to each anchor to our 15ft webbing to allow the rope to touch ground. The first section is tricky then it gets comfortable. Apr 18, 2010
