Description

The boulder crux is the crimpy and powerful bulge about 2/3rds of the way up, although holding it together on the very technical micro featured upper slab is no easy feat. This climb was rated 12b/c in the Ruckman guidebook, but it seems a few holds have broken and now the grade is suggested at 12d (very dependent on temperature!- for unbelievable friction climb it in the shade at 39 degrees!). As the story goes, after the Snowbird competition in 1988, Marc Le Menestrel onsighted this route* and proclaimed it as one of the best he had ever climbed. Impressive onsight! Sadly, to the disgust of all present, Didier Raboutou fell during his onsight attempt, hung his head, and returned to Euroland. (*as verified by the Mayor of LCC)

Location

This awesome face climb looms above the standard anchors of The Green Adjective. Climb the Green A and then scramble/ climb about 30 feet higher up to the right to another set of bolted anchors-this is the start of the route. The first bolt is up past the initial short steep section and on the slab. A series of rappels puts you back at the porch of the Green A.

Protection

After you lead The Green Adjective(bring nuts)quickdraws are all that is needed to see you up this route. Chain anchors at top.

To my knowledge that's an uncompleted open project. Partially bolted by Doug Heinrich. May 19, 2014

Not this year. Last season I broke a medium hold just before the initial steep section but I don't think it made it much different. That and the jug you mentioned and I'm really sorry. Oct 13, 2008
Is the flexy-flake (upper slab crux) the main thing that has broken, or has something else broken this season?

Marc Le Menestrel on-sighted it when he was here for the first Snowbird comp in '88. Mike Beck said that Didier tried it and fell off the top. Oct 13, 2008

I'm sorry for the holds I broke. This is a fantastic line I haven't quite mastered. Oct 12, 2008

This is one of the more improbable lines on the granite. Amazing route. Oct 12, 2008
