Description

This is the first pitch. There's a rap station 1/2 way up the wall before things turn steep. Two Cruxes and continuous climbing make this a fun pitch. There are a few glued on holds, notably the jug at the 3rd clip which also features a big X.

Location

Big Wall

Protection

Whole first pitch is rather easy, except for the last bolt before the anchor is a really crimpy section where you traverse from the right of the bolt to the left on a crimp ledge (the crux), part of those crimps were wet when I sent, so it may be easier than it was for me. May 2, 2017

The sidepull hold at the crux broke sometime last year, so the crux at the second bolt is a bit harder now. Jun 7, 2011
