Description

Closer To God is a high-quality route with an intriguing boulder problem crux at the top. Start on Animal Magnetism and clip 8 bolts before heading up and right toward a large roof. There's a good rest out right before launching into a leftward traverse under the roof. A very difficult sequence surmounts the roof, followed by a last-move crux on imaginary holds. There are two drilled underclings under the roof. I take no credit for finding the line (nice work Mark), bolting it, or chipping it. This route was an open project known as Animal Antagonizer.

Protection

16 bolts plus a two-bolt anchor.

Nice one, Chris! This climb is surprisingly good. The final crux sequence is anything but straight forward, but the sequence that emerges is freakin' rad-iculous! Jul 10, 2009

Not like I'm capable of climbing it, but I think it is sad that it is chipped. Jul 11, 2009
