Description

This climb is by-far the best warm up option at the Renaissance Wall and despite zero stars in Gillett's guide, it is totally worth a run. Climb up through the first bolt of Renaissance Wall (12c) and then fire directly up past one more bolt and into a left-facing corner. Jam the corner and plug some larger (#3 at its largest) gear as it arches left and narrows. The crack eventually dies out and interesting face holds and crimps are left, with good gear options in the smaller range. This route meets back up with the first pitch of Renaissance Wall and shares its anchors.

A second pitch continues up and left along an overlap through what appears to be total choss, but don't ask me I lowered off.

Location

Begin just left of Dakota (13b) on the Renaissance Wall.

Great pitch for sure that deserves more traffic as a high quality 5.11 Lumpy crack. Jan 3, 2012
