Description

Right About Now is a great route on excellent rock, with sustained, intriguing climbing. Unfortunately the crux lost a key hold recently, leaving an uncharacteristically intense crimp move at the third bolt.

Begin just right of the big Juniper Pine. Scramble 8' up the ramp, then up onto the wall on big holds. The crux begins just above the 2nd bolt, involving a glassy crimp that used to be a foot hold. Larger holds lead to the horizontal break and a great rest in the obvuous hole. Pumpy, juggy moves between jug pockets lead up the bulge to the slab. A few easy moves gain the headwall and a few tricky moves to reach the juggy finish.

Location

On the left side of The Citadel. This route is easily identified by an 18" diameter hueco in the horizontal break.

Protection

~10 bolts to 2BA. Stick clip recommended.

I thought this was one of the more enjoyable routes I've got on this year in Lander. There's seemingly a lot of different ways to go about the crux, each cool in their own way. Really cool moves, really good rock, even ends on some thought provoking slab. Tall!! 4 star in my book for sinks Dec 2, 2017
