Description

Climb a splitter crack on the wall right of Giants of Science. A desperate move is encountered at the bulge where the crack is too thin for fingers, but the climbing eases after that.

This route was named for Roy West, but the FA was actually done in the mid Eighties by Kent Jameson and Ken Gygi. Also rated 5.11 in the Kent's 1987 route submission to Climbing magazine.

Feels like 11b to me. Can clip anchors to Giants of Science or Lucky Town. Should mention that it has some painful locks on it. Jul 16, 2011
