It's often said about this route... "I've never been kicked off by holds that big"... Very true, everything is good.. there is a crux, it's not much harder than the rest of the moves on the route, just straight up enduro climbing. Fight the pump past the crux on huge holds. It's about a 15 degree overhanging.


Right side of the Load. Start on top of a small boulder, look for the line of people.

One of my least favorite routes at the 'Lode (not load) which is sad considering how many times I've climbed it. Sep 7, 2009

This route is actually called "Chainsaw Massacre" in the Ray Ellington guidebook. May 28, 2011

yep. chainsaw massacre. quite boring as well. Feb 12, 2013
by 15 degrees, I'm assuming you mean past vertical 90, thus a 105 degree angle climb. Actually thought it was more like 110 or 115, as most that wall seems... Feb 12, 2013
Yep, angle on this one is about 30 degrees past vertical, as it is for most of the Undertow, except for the steeper routes on the left end. Feb 15, 2014

The lower offs on this need to be replaced pretty bad. They aren't equalized and the carabiner taking the load has a real deep groove. Mar 22, 2015

All the moves are there, but I kept whipping at the chains on seemingly bad anchor clipping holds. That's a fun ride take... Jan 1, 2016
