DescriptionAgainst The Grain is a tremendous line up somewhat hidden section of cliff. This route allows for safe/difficult climbing on a fractured, gear protected face at first, then a sweeping arete littered with bolts.
Hard moves off the deck lead to some difficult exit moves to the first ledge (optional anchor). More hard moves off the ledge lead to balancy, bolt-protected arete climbing to the anchor. When last I climbed this, I left as though I could have skipped a couple of the upper bolts, as they are fairly close together.
After the initial chossy rock, this route yields some fine schist (oxymoron?!) to the top.
LocationTucked into a right facing corner, roughly 150 feet to the left from where the main face ends and the Rose/Thorn face begins.
