Restrain This

5.11b, Sport, 80 ft,  Avg: 2.9 from 47 votes
FA: Jack Marshall, 1995
California > Los Angeles Basin > Santa Monica Mo… > Echo Cliffs > Pink Wall

Description

Large edges and pockets lead up and right through steep rock for 3 bolts to the crux which features smaller holds and may require some creative footwork. Once past the crux the angle eases and the holds become better - if you can stay on your feet it should be in the bag.

The steep climbing and fun moves on this route make it a recommended 5.11 route at Echo.

Location

This is the 3rd bolt line from the left and shares the first two bolts with the classic Split Decision (5.11d) before diverging right.

Protection

8 bolts, chain anchors

[Hide Comment] The sustained crux makes this a fun and pumpy one. Solid for the grade. Dec 11, 2012

[Hide Comment] Really fun route. If anything the crux was more about trusting the moves and gunning for the next bolt! Jun 17, 2016

[Hide Comment] This one felt burly, but I was pretty worked by the time I got on it. Good fun. Apr 21, 2019
