Description

This climb is super fun! Steep climbing with incredibly good holds. Start by climbing straight up aiming for nothing less than jugs. After bolt 3, make a reachy move to some great holds below a pronounced overhang. Try to shake out here. Find a finger lock in the overhang, pull the overhang and clip the bolt. Make another reachy move to a shallow hold (for this climb) and move fast to more jugs (crux). From here, keep it together and trend up and right with increasingly good holds. The last jug may be hard to find.

Location

This area is located to the far right side of the Fern Buttress area. Fall Line is the first line of bolts to the left of the waterfall.

Protection

7 bolts, shuts.

This climb is a rarity: a route at the NRG that RRG climbers will think is soft! Either way, do it. It's an amazing endurance line in one of the most beautiful settings of the area. Apr 30, 2018
