Description

This is a great new route, taking a nice line to the top of the cliff. Bouldery start and continuous techy moves characterize the first pitch. This route pushes the mind a little after the second bolt then turns more moderate for the second pitch. Can be done in one pitch.

Location

This lies right of Apple Cider and crosses Tennis Shoe Traverse. Face climb following seams to a shallow corner and a belay station. The second half follows the shallow corner which becomes a roof and crack system which is followed to the top. Descend from fixed anchor (70m rope).

Protection

The first pitch is all bolts. The second takes some gear with a few bolts.

Is this the first bolted line to the right of Punta? If so, what is the rating of P1 (ends with an awkward mantle onto the ledge)? Mar 11, 2012
Yeah Dylan, I believe it is the first bolted line right of Punta. Most people seam to agree that the first pitch is around .12a. I remember the second pitch was somewhere in the .10+/.11- range? But it's been a few years and a couple hundred beers since I last climbed it. Apr 18, 2012
