Conglomernaut

5.10b/c, Trad, 70 ft,  Avg: 2.3 from 4 votes
FA: Shannon Stegg
Alabama > Sand Rock > Turtle Rock

Description

The name says it all; like the other routes in this section, Conglomernaut is ready to shred your hands in its pebbly, conglomerated crack. The strenuous start is fortunately well protected.

Using hand jams and stemming, pull through an overhung, right-leaning crack system; for an easier option, climb the right face on nice fins until you can move left to the crack. Follow the crack to its end and continue on easier, juggy face climbing (with sparser protection) to the top.

Location

Starts on the conglomerated wall between Pebble Power and Faith. Walk off by jumping across to the main wall and go right to a descent trail.

Protection

Small to medium gear (cams and passive pro); sling horns. Gear anchor at the top.
