Description

Did 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.

Location

Just 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.

Protection

20 slings and draws- take some longer ones to keep the drag down.

Cool route. The moves aren't that difficult. The crux is in the length of the route and figuring out the sequence. Probably about 150'. Need 2 ropes to get down or you can lower and then go in direct to some quick links and lower again. Mar 20, 2015
