Description

On the lower right side of the Industrial Wall a massive visor jets out from the cliff band, creating one of the steepest, longest sections of [overhanging] rock in the Boulder area. Straight up the right side of this beastly overhang one will find T.G.V. Matt Samet bolted this killer route and George Squibb snagged the first ascent in 1992.

T.G.V is a power route with great position on excellent rock. A series of monster jugs progressively worsen until you are presented with a strenuous undercling crux on horrible feet. A number of long, power moves still separate you from the chains, ending with an engaging huck. Very bouldery.

Location

To reach the start of T.G.V. you must go along the base of the cliff, back towards the train tracks. After passing Tunnel Vision (13b) you will find a rope ladder leading to a slab. Follow your nose on the slab to the base of Fraction (11c) and continue left to the base of T.G.V. Tie in, clip two bolts and then drop the rope to your belayer.

Translated TGV is "high-speed train". Probably the only one in the US is this climb. Aug 30, 2014

After sending this thing, don't clip the anchors. Instead, lower off the last bolt. Your rope will thank you. Oct 3, 2008
