DescriptionStart with Genesis (2P, 120m, 5.9) to the big roof.
P1 (Genesis). 70m+. Belayer should start 15 meters up the ramp. Climb 5.9 for a whole 60m rope to the 2 bolt anchor.
P2 (Genesis). 40m. Continue up the crack system to 5 meters under the roof. Two bolt anchor. 5.9
P3. 30m. Traverse the roof right (fixed pin half way) to a 2 bolt anchor. On the FA it was A1. We think it will go at 5.11 after a bit more cleaning. 30m
P4. 55m. Go straight up past a ledge and continue up a left-facing corner with a little offwidth. Fight the tree and pull through the bulge/roof boulder to the ledge above and a 2 bolt anchor. On the FA it was A1. Will go clean mainly at 5.9 with a hard move at the end to gain the belay ledge.
P5. 60m. Take the overhanging, left-facing corner off the belay. When it turns vertical move right past the only progress bolt on the route to the offwidth / chimney system and continue to the 2 bolt anchor. 5.10/5.11 or A1. Note: We had to climb the offwidth grass mound / tree combo straight up but highly recommend the left variation now that it is cleaned. A lot safer and better climbing.
P6. 55m. Climb up the chimney system (probably pretty wet) using a combination of offwidth and stemming technique. Place a poor #3 camalot (which apparently holds falls) at the top and pull the overhang at 5.10?(or A1 off a sketchy hook). Hopefully for you the left wall isn't coursing water when you try this pitch (highly recommend waiting 1+ day after rain). 2 bolt anchor. 5.10 A1.
P7. 55m. Continue up the chimney system, offwidth climbing and stemming. Again, hope this is dry for you. Look for the fixed knife blade where nothing else will go in. Recommend a screamer. Continue to anchor of 2 bolts (and a fixed pin if you like).
P8. 60m. Continue straight up the crack systems to the left of the anchor. Easier climbing but poorly protected. I placed 5 pieces on the whole pitch. A #6 camalot up higher was the only good piece I got on this pitch. Follow to 2 bolt anchor (which is much better than the trees I originally used). 5.6
P9. 60m. Easy but runout climbing. 15 meters off the belay I crammed the smallest 2 C3s in crumbling rock. Climb another 35+ meters above this to your first good piece (#5 camalot, #4 camaot, #3 camalot) on the right side of the huge boulder. Climb this offwidth slot to the summit. Rap from below the summit off the that huge block (equalized to a crappy dead tree).
