Description

Fear is Never Boring is a great route with fun moves and some wild exposure!

The route is mostly sustained 5.9 with a couple of 5.10 cruxes. There are three rappel stations, which allows the use of one 60m rope. The first pitch is 180 feet and can be broken up into two pitches, but it is best to climb past the first set of anchors (which is a little off route anyway). The second pitch is 80 feet and gains anchors at the top of the wall.

Rappel the route, three rappels.

Location

This is an obvious route up the middle of the wall. The climb finishes to the right of a large, right-facing corner at the top of the wall.

Protection

16 draws for the 180 foot first pitch. If you don't have 16 draws, the route can be broken up into 3 pitches (not recommended). 60m rope.

Bring a nut for protection on the top pitch. =There is a crack just before the final anchor with no bolts, somebody has left one nut (felt good to me), and you would benefit from placing one additional piece if you have it. = A bit heady up there....

Great climb, top pitch gets shade early so get after it early in the day! May 31, 2016
