Description

Barbarian Rising, like it’s neighbor Locks of Dread has a gas pocket crux section over small gear. Overall Barabarian Rising packs in more sustained climbing and better rock.

Barbarian Rising and Tainted Love share the same blocky start, followed by a nice section of hands. At the roof, move out right underneath (5.11), and gain the rest just before the crux. A hand full of small TCUs should bolster your confidence, and unconventional cranking will lead you past the crux (.12-). Though the grade backs off after the crux it is still a haul to the anchors.

Location

Starts just to the left of Locks of Dread.

Protection

Bulk up on #000- #2 TCUS, doubles on the rest to #1 Camalot.
