Start just left of Worthwhile Pile and climb up and left following thin seams up to a bolt, then move left (crux) to a crack that leads to the top.

This is probably the best route on Worthwhile Pile.


To 4 inches, bring many 1/2 inch to 1 inch CDs for the seams. Two #2 and one #3 or #4 camalot work nicely for the anchor if you want to rig a TR.

More sustained and generally a better route than "Holden On". Thin, tricky pro keeps you thinking, but is good enough to keep you safe. May 10, 2011

Anybody try the variation that goes up and right through bolt rather than to the left to the crack? Maybe 10c? Made a really high right step up and lied back facing the left on edges. Did a really balancey move stepping left foot up before reaching up to a decent hold, then hand traversed right with little in the way of footholds but good hands. Finished up Worthwhile Pile.
