Description Suggest change

Aftershock starts out casual, climbing a steep, blocky ramp. Encounter a ledge and find some protection. Prepare yourself here for the next series of very committing moves. -Turning back will be difficult- Proceed with caution up and right through flakes and crimps, moving and stemming carefully through the crux. Stay tight and watch those feet; clip a piton and jam to more secure ground. Follow the crack around the face and locate the anchors.

  • Aftershock originally had a bolt to protect the crux. It appears and disappears leaving holes and bolt sleeves. With help from MW of the ASCA, we patched this hole in Aug 08. The crux was found to be adequately protected without the bolt.

Location Suggest change

Aftershock is on the East facing wall of the The Cathedral. This route starts just right of Skinny Len Crimps on blocky, bulging terrain.

Protection Suggest change

Set of Stoppers, Cams from .3 to #3 bd, and slings. One piton plus chains.
