Description

This is a great extension to Nostalgia (5.11c) and it's a rope stretcher. The crux comes at about bolt 16 or 17 with pretty small crimps that lead up to a juggy finish - just look for all of the glued feet and crimps.

Since this route is over 100' long it's common to L-P-L to get down - lower down to the midpoint anchors, pull your rope, and then lower again/rap to the ground (works with a 60m rope).

Really fun movments. Extension can be broken down into sections which makes this a soft 12a. A no hands rest awaits after the anchor to nostalgia and a few more spots above. I've alway wanted to do this climb and finally did it yesterday with strong wind gust. A highly recommended route for 12a. May 8, 2012

A very good route. I thought there is a distinctive crux in the extension. Can be TRed with an 80-m rope with some stretch. Feb 10, 2014
