Interesting crux move - don't want to give it away.


smaller TCUs, up to #2 C4 and #3 stopper

I have climbed at Ship forever and never been down to the Hidden Wall. Just recently ventured down there, for approach beta take the trail to the upper tier and turn right where the trail forks at a large boulder and its two seconds till your there.

The climb itself is totally rad and gets way less traffic then it deserves! First placement is a little high off the deck but after that gear is plentiful! Crux is most definitely pulling the "mystery" roof move!! Gear placement can make this a bit of a mental crux as well, but fear not because it protects if you can just find the secret spot (hint: small nuts). Even though it looks like you can set up a top-rop, I think it would be a little hairy getting down to the anchors, so be aware of that if you decide to bale. Nonetheless A worthy and fun tick on the Ship List!

Climbed this last fall and could not bring myself to pull the crux even though I managed to find the sneaky gear. Finally did it and must say that being tall will be of some help. Once you go for it, you will find what you are looking for! Jun 18, 2012

A fun route with a heady, height dependent crux. Mar 24, 2016

I managed to thread a big stopper down low to protect the roof move. I am not tall (not short either), but I found the roof to be fairly easy and straightforward, albeit a bit exciting! Get on it! Oct 8, 2018
