Wizard's Path

Description

A wizard's path is one of wandering... and expect nothing less of this amazing route. Start from a detached block by pulling on some tiny edges and knobs. Continuous and interesting slab climbing leads you to a small overlap, where you wander a bit left and then back far right before shooting straight up towards a large undercling. Consistent 5.10+ climbing creates an 11- pump.

Location

This is the left route on the large, beautiful slab. Begin off a detached block.

Protection

9 bolts and chains.

[Hide Comment] Another awesome climb, definitely easier than Guillotine but longer. It's possible to place a medium-large cam at a wide, crystalline crack 3/4 of the way up. Not necessary as the climbing above is good, but it reduces a bit of runout from the last bolt. Jul 3, 2010
