Sticky situation Details

Description

Start up a pretty, clean slab below the left end of the roof system that caps the lower part of this wall. The first 10a crux is off the fourth bolt, stepping up and left. Go straight up to the roof, step over and head up and slightly right into a shallow trough. The second, slightly harder, crux is here, pretty squeaky smearing for a few moves. The second pitch is considerably easier, 5.7 or 5.8 with good positive holds all the way.

Location

This route is on the initial wall you see as you drive into the Moonstone, left of The Faster We Go, the Rounder We get, below the left end of the roof system that caps the lower part of this wall. The first four bolts curve up and left.

Protection

Bolts, 3/8" Fixx. Fixx rappel rings at all belays. Many quickdraws, but take a couple of single runners for the roof. Rappel the route. 60m rope required. Two 60m ropes required to rappel the route.

Climbed this a few days ago - thanks for the great additions to the wall Bob & team! I cleaned a rather large flake off the 2nd pitch while seconding - watch what you tug on. Jun 1, 2015
