Nyorgai

5.12a, Sport, 50 ft,  Avg: 3.7 from 12 votes
FA: Rob Woolf
Colorado > Canon City > Shelf Rd > N End

Description

Start on the detached flake and head straight into the arete with good sidepulls and crimps passing the second bolt with some fun off-balance arete climbing to make the crux with a long reach or a secret pocket. From here, pull around right and navigate the maze of potential holds on both sides staying on the arete until the anchors.

Location

Left of Swiss Cheese Wall on the obvious arete with a chossy bottom.

Protection

Bolts.

[Hide Comment] I was kind of surprised at how hard this one felt. Weird, technical, and sharp. Jun 1, 2010
