Description

Heat Sensitive has a little bit of everything. To get to the first bolt requires an extremely powerful undercling move and highstep with the left foot. Clipping the first bolt is not such a problem and can be reached from the right hand undercling/sidepull, but the second bolt if missed (you clip off some fairly small chips) could end in a bad fall. I used a single carabiner on the first bolt.

From here the climbing only gets better. Fun, technical moves lead you to a dynamic finish. The only reason for the pg-13 rating is because of the start. The rest of the route is protected nicely. The rock is solid and this climb should definitely be done more often.

Location

Just to the right of "By Hook or By Crook."
