Description

These are a fun couple pitches of handcracks. We could have started in a better spot. This route is on the left wall of V-Rock and ascends two pitches to a nice bolted anchor 60m up wall.

Location

This is on the left side of V-rock Wall in the center of the wall. Rap off with two 60m ropes or continue to top or wall. Admire all of the ravens at the top.

Protection

Extra hand sizes. Fun move at top before anchors!

A super fun route. The first pitch is not short and very memorable, but the main pitch is fantastic with 2 roofs and great climbing, mostly hands to tight hands but with some wide stuff too plus protection options in thinner cracks nearby. I brought singles from black Alien to old #4 plus nuts and 2 #1s, 4 #2s, and 2 #3s. On the main pitch, I used almost all of it and even with the belay higher at the stance ~20ft further up the route from the big belay ledge, but I'm a chicken! Definitely a great route and worth doing. I felt more worked by the end than from the neighboring "Unknown 5.10". Oct 19, 2014
