Description

Very nice appealing route that climbs by squeezing blocks that stick out of the wall. High first bolt and like many of the routes on North Wall the difficulties are broken by a slabby section in the middle.

Stick clip the first bolt as it is high. Pinch the right side of the blocks while working your left up seams and pockets, some find the top pocket sharp but if you sidepull it mostly it is not bad. Make a long move up with the right to an edge then out left to a good hold and clip the second. Layback and sqeeze your way up the next rib that juts from the wall till you can chill on the slab. Work up into some underclings and clip. Then tackle the slightly overhung headwall on edges and sidepulls.

Location

Climbs the wedged looking block features out the steep wall down low about 100 feet up from the main concentration of routes.

Protection

Bolts and bolted anchor, stick clip the first as it is high and the crux comes moving past it so it is nice to not have to stop.

Really fun route with a good variety of movement and holds. A good boulderer's route, if you can pull the lower crux, nothing up high should slow you down. Apr 5, 2009
