Access Issue: Located in a National Forest Fee Area Details

Description

A short, pumpy route with some tricky movement.

Start climbing up to the first bolt with a pocket and some small edges. Clipping the first bolt is balancy, the path over the bulge to the second bolt is not immediately obvious and requires some strenuous positioning.

Following the second bolt are big holds (with occasionally tricky body positioning) through the third and fourth bolts, followed by smaller, less positive holds to the chains.

Location

Found on the left, uphill side of The Membrane to the right of a rounded roof. Right of Drunken Midget, left of Bad Faith.

Protection

4 bolts and chains.

[Hide Comment] Really fun getting up to the third bolt. The description said it perfectly with regards to balance and strength required. Very sustained, but there always seems to be a positive hold to save you after you spent everything getting through precarious positions. Sep 6, 2010
