Description [Edit]

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 [Edit]

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 [Edit]

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
