Description

One of the last (super obvious, anyway) lines to go down on the Right Wall, Kindness is a beautiful pitch of gear-protected climbing. This route tackles some seriously intimidating terrain and is super fun!

Begin as for No Feelings which moves up fractured rock skirting well to the left of the massive, lower roof. Where No Feelings continues moving way left to a system that avoids the huge upper roof, Kindness heads directly up to it via a nice thin-hands crack.

Once at the roof, undercling right to a jug and take a few breaths before pulling the roof via imaginary tips and some wonderfully strange moves that will bring a smile to your face. If all goes well, you'll find yourself established in the beautiful upper corner no worse for wear. Continue upwards with 5.12 liebacking and stemming to a stance at a hand jam and a horizontal that is just a little too steep for comfort. Step left here (do not continue straight up!) into an exposed, overhanging finger crack that culminates with a final mantle onto the top of the column.

Location

Begin at fractured rock below the two huge roofs - one at 50', the other at 75'.

Protection

A double set from tips to 2", wires, long slings and a 70m rope.
