Description

An excellent power-endurance line, Peace Frog climbs a steep panel of juggy pockets split by good rests. This is the type of "jug-haul" the Red is famous for, and it would be a classic at most crags. However, the rock tends to be sandy from time to time, which detracts a bit from the experience.

Begin by scrambling up the easy ledge. If this route has a crux, its got to be clearing the roof at the start. Make a big reach out to the lip, work your feet, and begin the sprint. The angle relents at the fourth bolt, where another difficult section is encountered. A few bolts higher a big reach arrives at a large flake and one last shake. Head up and a bit right of the bolt line on sculpted, sandy pockets. Head back left at the last bolt, where the wall steepens noticeably and make a few more pumpy moves to the top.

Location

On the right end of The Sanctuary cave is a series of five steep bolt lines that lie between two left-facing dihedrals (the left dihedral overhangs at ~ 45deg, the right one is more or less vertical). Peace Frog is the second line from the left dihedral.

Protection

~8 Bolts, 2 BA. Stick clip highly recommended.
