Description

P1: Start up a gully, pulling over a few bulges before reaching a 2 bolt anchor near a bush and dihedral. 8 bolts

P2: Instead of continuing up the crack/dihedral, clip a bolt, step down, and then traverse left on some inobvious crimps. A few more powerful moves past the next bolt lead to an awesome finish where incut edges abound. 7 bolts

You can link these pitches together with twin ropes or if you extend most of the bolts.

Rap with one rope in two rappels using the anchors on Window Shopper.

The first pitch needs some more climbing to clean up. An okay pitch.
P2 is much better, with a couple hard moves off the belay followed by more moderate face. Exposed and fun. Aug 30, 2010

I thought the first pitch was great but probably only 5.9 or 5.10a. Jun 6, 2012

Fun climbing! I agree with Ken about the first pitch - maybe 5.10a? A tricky, but well protected crux. Jun 11, 2012

Yeah I'd say 10a for the first pitch, lotta loose stuff too. Second pitch is great Jul 10, 2012

Fantastic. It's all pretty easy except for the p2 crux. P1 must have cleaned up nicely--it's about as clean as you could hope for, minus one loose flake that has a lot of chalk on it. Quite easy to avoid that flake. Apr 21, 2015

Beta on the two bolted extensions that depart from the ledge atop this climb? Sep 5, 2017
The two routes off the Supergrinder ledge share a common start for a couple of bolts before spliting:

Left - Three Amigos, 12b (11a, 12b)
Right - Megagrinder, 12a (10d, 12a)

I seem to recall a 70m being mandatory for the second pitch on both if using a single rope. The first pitches aren't as long.

Sorry, I've already forgotten exact bolt counts, but I would plan on something in the upper teens since both last pitches are close to 35m long. No gear required.

Edit: Just repeated Three Amigos with an 80m. I can say that a 70m IS mandatory for a single rope lower as I remembered. On both routes. Sep 5, 2017
Was great climbing both Three Amigos and Mega Grinder with you Darrell. Gotta say I must have gained inspiration from you for the send of Mega. Sep 20, 2017
