Architect Rally

5.10d, Sport, 70 ft,  Avg: 2.8 from 57 votes
FA: unknown
Washington > Central-W Casca… > N Bend & Vicinity > Exit 38 > Exit 38: Decept… > Nevermind Wall

Description

A fun, well-protected, and sequency route that challenges the climber to rely heavily on good footwork, stamina, and route finding skills.

This route begins below the inobvious, blocky, left-facing corner two routes to the left of the obvious 5.9 ramp on the right side of the crag. Climb some moderately technical terrain to a definite crux that guards the bottomless dihedral below the anchor.

Location

The right side of the cliff, two routes to the left of the 5.9 ramp below a shallow left-facing, blocky corner.

Protection

9 bolts, plus two for the anchors.

[Hide Comment] This has no single hard move but it has long stretches at the difficulty that other 10d-s at E38 only have for 1-2 moves total. That may make it feel like a 10d for someone who climbs much harder grades I guess? For me it felt like other 10ds need to be downgraded then :) Aug 8, 2017
