Description

Tunnel Vision climbs the steep overhang just uphill from the tracks. Begin by pulling through a hard V7/8 boulder problem, continue through some big moves on good holds (not great rests though), and finish with crimpy 12c climbing to the chains. To get through the boulder problem at the beginning, youÂ’ll need to make a big reach with your right hand to a weird undercling/gaston (careful with the right shoulder). The climb is only about 40 feet long, but it is sustained and pumpy at the top.

My recollection is that this route was chipped down low. Nov 3, 2009

Thanks Hank. I remember a quite positive edge/pocket that looked suspicious but if you know otherwise, that's fine with me. Nov 3, 2009

I agree with J-Star. This route climbs much better than it looks, and has some really cool holds. The shouldery move isn't so bad-especially for taller folks. Overall- it's worth doing. Feb 2, 2010

Crux is hard if you're short. More like V8/9.... Nov 29, 2010
I enjoyed this route very much. It has been quite a while, but if I remember correctly, you can go up with your left at the crux and do a core strength/ body tension thing if the right arm gaston move troubles you. I think it is height-dependent though. I'm 5.11&1/2, my friend is a little shorter and couldn't do it that way but got a shoulder injury on the right arm gaston. Oct 21, 2012

The flake for that big move is gonna break.... Says height-dependent, but at 5'9", it still feels pretty soft for 13b. Jan 24, 2015

I was told that the flake did in fact break off...and shattered into a million pieces. No chance of gluing it back on. RIP, Tunnel Vision. Jan 2, 2016
