Un-named in the guide this is a good warm up for access to the top to set up TR. Some loose blocks to contend with.


Right facing corner with fractured rock at the top left of Via Apia.

So I actually enjoyed this route a lot more than the ratings would suggest. However, there is basically no pro for the top 20’ or so. Easy climbing on jugs, but some felt loose. Tread carefully - pretty sure there’s decking potential if you were to blow the top out. Jun 24, 2018

I thought this was a great route, and might have even given it 4 stars if the top half were a little less crumbly. The moves were fun, there were great stances for gear and I was able to get gear at every point that I wanted it (including the top). A #4 is useful, but 2 #3s would work too.

FWIW, I knocked around the top a bunch and except for one jug that had some crumbly stones on it, everything felt solid enough.

e; Should have clicked the YouTube link before rating. Anything named after a Death song is 4 stars in my book. Aug 19, 2018
