DescriptionNicorette is not your typical RRG 5.12, and perhaps for this reason its not nearly as popular as it used to be. With technical moves between thin pockets & minute feet, this route is a nice change of pace for those looking to test a different set of skills. The rock lacks the brilliant orange shades of other classics on the wall, but the rock is just as sweet.
Begin a bit right of the arete with juggy moves through a small overhanging. If you need it, there is a good rest here. Next is the technical crux, a vicious pull on a thin, rounded sidepull, to gain an excellent jug. After a brief shake, a series of thin, positive, sequential pockets leads up and left to the arete. Work your left hand up the unfortunately mossy & sometimes dirty arete, using intermittent pockets along the bolt line for the right. When the jug band up high is reached, traverse right easily to the anchor.
