DescriptionDid you remember to Carbo-load? Eat your Wheaties? Because here comes a 175' of enduro, hard-to-pull the rope and clip 20 draws A$$-kicking. In my case I was on the wrong line...
This is a good climb, which by the time I was approaching the top, forearms burning and with knots in my calf-muscles, 2 bolts above my last quickdraw at the final bulge, I was begging for a handjam ... and thankfully got it.
With enough slings and draws this doesn't have to be the experience, but one should till expect a few hard moves, a lot of 5.10 and 5.11 climbing, and a whole lot of enduro. I was tired at 80' up when I had expected to be finished.
Not to mention great rock and fun moves for most of the climb.
LocationJust down and right from the eye of the needle- the next route right of Peekaboo Jesus. Aspire winds up and right from the ground below a bulge with thin holds, then up and over to more vertical rock on sidepulls and crimps to a final bulge and to the anchors on top. The route finishes on a good ledge the left shoulder of the summit.
