Description

A fingertip-ripping pitch of technical face climbing.

Though somewhat marred by its proximity to the first pitch of Pilgrim's Progress, The Rapture is an amazing test of footwork, finger strength and route finding.

Tic-Tac your way up the face immediately to the left of Pilgrim's Progress until it is possible to reach the fractured crack system shared with the last 15 feet of Mayflower.

Though I have not led this yet, this will most definitely be a safe lead.

Location

Immediately to the left of the first pitch of Pilgrim's Progress.

Protection

6 bolts and a few pieces of small gear (blue to orange TCUs, plus a small rack of nuts).

I think the guidebook calls this thing 11d which is kind of a joke if you ask me. Feels closer to 12b imo. One thing about this route is you really have to think about your feet and sequence on it or the moves feel near impossible. Beta is very tight and specific but the moves flow nicely once you do it. Also your tips will hurt a bit.... Oct 30, 2012
