Description

This wild ride maybe is a tad better than Red Gorilla just to the right; although it has some lower-quality rock down low, the choss is more than offset by its outrageously exposed gymnastic climbing. Scramble up easy rock (same start as for Red Gorilla), then diagonal left and up past four bolts to the arête. Continue on easier ground past another bolt (shared with Creaking Plank) to the Red Gorilla chains. See the photodiagram on the Orbital Decay page.

For those who might have investigated Nimbus prior to June 2012, the line has been “straightened out,” two bolts added, and cleaned, again.

Location

See the Red Gorilla page for approach and beta photo.

Protection

Six draws, plus two for the chains.

Once you find the hidden buckets the route is pretty straightforward and appropriately graded, but when you're up there slapping at slopey sidepulls and pinches on your onsight attempt, it feels desperate. Tick marks anyone? Jun 14, 2013

I agree with the last comment. Once you dial the sequence it's pretty straight forward in what you have to do. Big move to jug, reposition, big move to jug and the finish is clean. Just commit and you'll get it!

Loved this route! For anyone concerned with the falls like I was... Don't be, while projecting this I fell on just about every bolt. The bolts are perfectly placed and falls are amazingly clean falling into open space. Oct 24, 2015

Pretty sweet little 12.a! Short and intense crux section. Would be higher rating if it were more sustained. Good work, Rud! Sep 14, 2018
