Description

Nicorette 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.

Location

Nicorrette climbs the right side of the rounded Southeast arete where the approach trail initially meets the cliff.
