Description

This has one hard pull off the ground (technical crux) and a weird move up high (endurance crux). It's a great route. This is the second route to have gone up in The Quarry.

Location

This is in the middle of the wall.

Protection

Cams, finger up to tight hands.

A good gear lead and a nice warm up. The first acent was done ground up on rope solo. It needed a lot of cleaning, so it was aided a bit but the anchor was hand drilled on lead. I lowered off pulled the rope and led it clean for the FFA with a little difficulty. The first move is tricky, but once it's figured out it's not bad. The finish is a little tricky as well, but good mental preparation for some of the other gear leads at this nice little quarry. Apr 4, 2009

The moves are tough right from the start. The entire route is 'pumpy' and so gratifying when you finish it. Nov 28, 2010

A good crimpy route from the start. The moves are all there. I found the crux to be the lieback near the bottom. After that, it gets more manageable. Another fun route on this fine climbing wall. Dec 12, 2010

Cleaning this was a chore, but it cleaned up very nicely. Nov 22, 2014

Angus, I hope I did not come off weird...I'm sure it is a safer climb now. I am not one to exercise territoriality over public lands. That crack is always dirty...certain parts of that wall gets coated in sand and grit with each big storm...I think most of the hard cracks up there are the same...let's go climb up there soon!

If this route is dirty, it can be very serious. I was looking at groundfall potential when pulling through the upper crux, since the crack was so filled with dirt, it was essentially unprotectable. I'm sure if it gets a good cleaning, it would protect quite nicely. If anyone wants to get out there with me to dig out the cracks, send me a message. All in all, it's a fantastic route! Jul 14, 2016
