DescriptionWhat's the Combo? is an enjoyable, sustained climb on a beautiful panel of white limestone. The movement is excellent & engaging, but some spooky rock and mild contrivance detract somewhat from the experience.
Begin up on a good ledge 3 feet off the ground. Easy scrambling along a detached flake leads to the business, 4-5 bolts of intense crimping & route finding, ending in a good shake at the obvious 6" undercling/flake. This section can be made easier (5.11) by using the left arete, but the climb is far more aesthetic & challenging without it.
Above the rest, 5.11- enduro crimps zig zag up the excellent headwall.
LocationThis is immediately left of "Flight Simulator", it climbs the clean wall immediately right of the obvious, flared, chimnney feature that splits the lower half of the "14 Carats" Wall.
Protection8 bolts, 2 bolt anchor. It is easy to TR this from Flight Simulator.
