DescriptionClimbing Peripatetic entails an initial scramble westward across a free-cut 300 pound boulder that leans against the parent mass of OMSF. This block does not shift under 150 pounds of body weight, but climbers are cautioned to move with care at this point, do not pull outwards!
Climb the thin crack where small and medium-sized nuts fit nicely, then up two parallel cracks just below a mantleshelf where you will find the first bolt. The line then follows a shallow, wandering crack system -- first up and left, then up and right back toward The Black Stain. At the second bolt on Peripatetic the climber has a choice of moving up and two feet right of the bolt to a bomber ledge grip for a 5.10a experience; or the climber can move two feet west of this bolt and stay on 5.9 moves. The route then parallels the Black Stain, staying about 6 feet to its left, going up the western margin of the roof bulges to the head wall. A third bolt protects the roof zone.
LocationThis route is the fourth (from the west) on OMSF, listed as #2 p. 51 of Squeezing the Lemmon II. Peripatetic starts 8 feet left (west) of The Black Stain.
