Le Pump

5.11, Trad, Sport, 90 ft,  Avg: 3.8 from 9 votes
FA: Jeff Lauschey, Monty Reagan 1987
N Carolina > Looking Glass Rock > Sun Wall

Description

Much steeper than it looks; the pump is good the moves are better! The route climbs up and left through steep eyebrows with good pro and a couple of bolts to ease the mind. The crux comes after the second bolt. After these moves you head out right to the anchors of Out To Lunch.

Location

This route is on the Sun wall 150' left of Tits and Beer. It is 10' to the left of a broken crack (Out to Lunch).

Protection

2 bolts; micro cams to .75. Rap rings at the top.
