Description

Start on a terrible round rail and move up through two more crimpy rounded rails with poor feet. Once the crack is reached climbing gets much easier, follow the crack up and right and top out. Let me know if you send and take pics.

Location

Starts in the middle of the face between Warm Up Crack and Uninspired Arete

Protection

1-2 pads

I got this route last friday. I'll call it 'Liber Abaci,' and call it V9. I climbed more or less straight up the face, so a little to the right of the line in the beta picture. Stand start, horrible feet, and super crazy crimps. I will post some pics asap. Apr 12, 2010

This was one of the harder projects in Duluth but I think there are harder one's out there. As for the grade I think peter is right on. Simlar in difficulty as V9s or V10 I have tried at Sawmill. And yes it is cool. The whole area of Little Fox Canyon is very cool. Here are some that may be harder-

I'm totally guessing at the grade. it took me a lot of work though. and by a lot, i mean obsessive. i would go out just to climb this some days until my fingers were bleeding, then tape up and go till i couldn't see anymore.

I really like the route... it is super crimpy and super technique related. It's basically the definition of my style, so I don't think others like it as much as me. If you ever want to come up here nic, I will show you some of the hard projects in duluth. Apr 13, 2010
