Description

Classic slab climbing incorporating both features and the lack thereof. Balance moves lead past the first couple of bolts. A featured face above leads to the technical crux: a sparsely featured low-angle slab.

Location

Located just to the right of Blue in the Face and left of Rythm and bolts. This is the left of two bolted starts that share the same two finishing options: either left to the .11 crux of Written in Stone, or right to the belay below BB Cling.

60m rope to get down.

Protection

Bolts. Anchor is fixed, but I can't recall whether it has chains or webbing; bring some of your own just in case.

Pitch is a little dirty currently, but still climbable. We added a piece of cord to the anchor to back up the existing webbing on 4/4/2016, if I head back up there soon I will replace the tat. Apr 4, 2016

Anchor is a bit of a junk show. we added a sling but didnt have a knife to remove the tat. Also one of the lockers on the anchor is welded shut. I'll try to replace this all with some chain on my next visit.

regardless, this pitch is amazing!! a tragedy of not being on the LTW, as it is dirty, but it has the makings of a classic index route. 3/4 of the climbing is 5.9esq and the cruxes are safe and easy to pull through. well worth ones while if at the cliff Apr 2, 2019
