Description [Edit]

The first 3 bolts is strenuous with no feet with sloping holds. Just grunt up this to a nice no hands rest. Moving up to the old chains placement is really fun - supposedly 11b to this point, I thought it was easier. Big moves to big holds.

At the old chain placement the moves get trickier and steeper. It slopes in slightly then bulges out. The next 3-4 moves is the obvious crux. As you reach this insloping area find crimps - then to an interesting triangular pocket, a pinch, a crimp then a bigger hold at the next crease. Once thru it you are rewarded with awesome traversing jugs to the chains. You'll be pumped and exposed but the holds are there.

Location [Edit]

Right of Back in the Saddle.

Despite the 2 star rating (I gave it 3) I really enjoyed this route. The upper half is the same as the climb to the right (Everest 201)...but the lower half features some fun slopers (with bad feet) up to a nice hand jam, a few nice jugs and then a fun switch onto the top of Everest. The start move seems a bit intimidating but is ok and can be stick clipped if that makes you feel safer (we didn't see the need too, as a fall would suck but wouldn't send you rolling down the hill). The upper crux is mega classic, moving off a 1 1/2 finger crimp into a nice horn for a quick shake out, then instantly into a mono followed by a blob 2 finger hold up to a tiny crimp and a desperate grab for an ok hold. After that it's just keeping it together to get to and clip the chains. Jun 24, 2015
