Description

Or should it be Extra-Extra Crimpy Chicken? A sustained adventure in technical face climbing nirvana.

Climb past two bolts to reach a gear pod. Now, summon the crimp gods and begin the adventure. Crimp and pimp, up the delicious face past a number of bolts to a great jug. Plug in more small gear and fire out the last few hard moves to reach a welcome and timely double bolt anchor.

Location

Starts left of Bombelay about 25 ft.

Protection

Bolts, doubles in tcu's to blue.

I left 4 cararbiners on the anchor. I think this is a good temporary fix until we put screw links or rap rings on them. Now you can be lowered off the top without running your rope through those gigantic hangers.

Amazing line! Super sequential with some small holds Oct 22, 2012

There are quicklinks and rap rings on the anchor now. I know that double TCU's are recommended, but some of those slots pod in the back. It is better to place sideways nuts instead so they bite on the top and bottom of the eyebrows. Less chance to walk after moving past the placement. I would also recommend one larger piece like pink tricam or .5 C4 after the second bolt, but nothing larger. Oct 22, 2014
