Sticky situation Details

Description

A great small hold, friction route on beautiful, clean stone. Cruxes between the first and fourth bolts. Somewhat led-out but not terribly so. The step over the roof is stimulating also. The second pitch has a lot of 5.9 friction/small face as well. 60m rope is required and if you rappel the route, two 60m ropes are required.

Location

This route is on the initial wall you encounter when first driving up to the Moonstone. It is the next route left of Floating World, going over the center-right end of the long roof. The second pitch proceeds straight up the trough above the first belay.

Protection

Bolts, 3/8" Fixx with Fixx ring rap anchors at belays. Take about 14 clips, including a couple of single length runners for the roof.

IMHO, I'd call this area the 2nd wall you see, (Panel III, L-R) between Central Crack and the Flake Route.
(The very first thing you see when you drive in I'd call Panel IV, with the 3 rising traverse cracks.) Jul 29, 2016
