Description

Wild, steep climbing up pockets of choss!

All right, its not that bad. More accurately graded on here, Blind Faith is a short, strenuous, gentle looking line that finishes on a smooth, cryptic face. A satisfying redpoint or onsight, Blind Faith offers just that, blind faith. If you can get this route clean, you'll experience disbelief without true understanding or perception.

Cranky~!

Location

This route lies directly across from Social Realism in the shotgun alley between Tower 2 & 3 The route is the obvious, bolted, hueco system.

Agreed. That thing kicked my ass. Pumpy jug haul to the midway hole then big moves to devious sidepulls and a hell of a hard time getting the feet out of the hole and onto the face. Stout.

The crux bolt is in a really shitty spot and the nut is loose. I hand tightened it as well as I could but beware, this is where falls happen. Maybe moving it a few inches to the right makes sense? It gets in the way of the undercling that makes the whole route, the draw resting on your thumb and being a giant pain in the ass. Jun 21, 2012

Sorry I think I sandbagged this route the first ascent went really well so I figured it was 11a then my brother and I climbed it again 2 years latter and thought it was more like 11b/c The crux move is reachy so if you are short it may be evan harder. Sean H. Jan 5, 2011
