Entrance Exam

5.10d, Sport, 35 ft,  Avg: 3.1 from 9 votes
FA: Peter Lataille, Steve Damboise, WS 3/86
Maine > Clifton Crags > Eagle Bluff

Description

Right Facing corner/bulge system on the entrance wall. Some tricky moves, a big reach or two, and thin footwork throughout. Much of the difficulty is finding the holds and realizing the moves. The rest of the difficulty is dealing with small/sharp crimps and awkward stances.

Location

The "Entrance Wall" is located to the left (while looking at the wall) of the practice wall and below it. The climb itself is directly below "Easy Stuff," a distinct dihedral topped by a large block.

Protection

5 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. Bring a couple shoulder-length runners to extend your power point over the lip at the top.
