Description

A high fastball in baseball...and a route with the hardest moves at the top.

Begin at the rappel anchor about 20' left of the flat boulder at the start of Group Therapy. The belayer should clip into this anchor, as the spot is exposed.

Climb about 20' left along a low-angle ramp to the first bolt. Clip the bolt and crank up a short wall to an easy slab. Climb the slab to a good ledge where the wall steepens. Climb a pillar with a hairline crack past five more bolts. A smooth slab awaits at the top of the pillar. Climb up on small holds past three more bolts (crux), and traverse right to the anchor.

Location

Start at the rappel anchor about 20' left of the flat boulder at the start of Group Therapy.

Protection

9 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor with lowering hooks.

This is a good route if you want to see what 9(+) slab is like. Bolts at the top are placed at a very safe (i.e. close) distance. Nice movement: arm-stemmy-down-pressury-body-tensiony-tiny-dish-smeary. Fun! (and I don't consider myself a 9 leader). "Nice job and thanks!" to whoever equipped this route. Aug 8, 2009
