Description

Slightly meandering at the start, this technical route keeps you guessing all the way to the corner above, where thin fingers are an asset.

Location

This is located on the Minion Wall. Start on a clean slab left of the arete, finishes on thin fingers corner.

Protection

8 bolts & gear to 1.5", bring a couple extra finger-size cams.
It is possible to step right to the anchors on Crandle Hammer Arete, but the perfect crack above should not be missed.

I thought the crack on this was harder than 10b. I thought it was about 11a. My friend placed a #1 Camalot near the top. Aug 31, 2014

Thought this was very good. Slabbing to a neat finger tip lieback corner. Third or fourth bolt?, I think, was placed a little higher than would have been optimal. The Corner felt harder than 5.10 to us. We did The Bends afterwards and thought this route was harder. Aug 4, 2014

Couple tricky thin spots on this one. One or two of the bolts on the upper part of the slab were in weird locations that were tough to clip and didn't really protect against the ledges below. Jun 3, 2013

This was way harder than the two "10c"'s we did earlier, Lord of the Files and White Dwarf. There's a perplexing slab move near the top of the slab section. The corner is sustained and a bit scary due to a potential ledge fall if one piece pulls. Once you start up the corner it's hard to stop to place gear. A #0.75 Camalot (green) is useful at the top. I placed a #0.5, but it was umbrella'd. Sep 20, 2011
