Description

Climb the wide crack to corner to overhanging hand crack to final face move to ledge.

One must be strong with the force to overcome the overhang. Only a weak minded fool would be tricked into underestimating the power of The Force..... its definitely Beaufort 9 force damaging...

Location

When you arrive at Typhoon Wall go up and Right to the Right side of the wall. There you will see three cracks right next to each other. The right most being a right facing corner the center being an overhanging finger crack (5.11c), and the left of the three being Force Nine!

Protection

I used mostly hand sized pieces. Look up at the crack and you can decide what gear you need.

I can only assume that because of the name of the crag (Typhoon Wall), that the route name refers to the Beaufort Scale which measures nautical wind gusts and potential damage. A Beaufort 9, or "Force 9", causes gale force winds in excess of 50 miles per hour, likely to cause small scale damage, and it is also the force at which water begins to crest and break. Apr 14, 2009

Chris is refering to my original post for Pro which said Jedi's dont use pro... Sorry for the original lameness..

If you need gear beta on this climb then you have no business being on it... plus dont want to spoil your onsite. I would encourage one to buy the guidebook for further info... I had no idea about the nautical terms... Thats cool! Glad you could clear that up Chris... Thanks!! Just trying to add to our wonderful ADK on the site.

i.e. wide crack to hand crack is all one must know... its 50' of climbing. Once you send it you will know why I say don't underestimate it... Excuse the Star Wars pun what can I say im a climbing geek... I could'nt resist! Apr 16, 2009
