Description

This Lowe family testpiece, has seen few repeats. The casual looking splitter sports shallow, flaring jams with virtually no footholds and is much steeper than it looks! Surmount the first crux bulge with desperate slaps and jams; the upper crux involves insecure climbing through the awkward flare with a good crack in the back. A large hold at the crux may have fallen off sometime between 1986 and 2002, so the rating may feel very sand bagged. Fortunately, the gear on this one is bomber.

Yeah, it's definitely a Greg Lowe route. Jeff told me about the second ascent with you. Great to hear you chime in, Kim! Jan 21, 2016

Good to see this old and historic route in the data base. I am almost certain that it is a Greg Lowe route, rather than George Lowe. Greg claimed it as a free route at least. I climbed it around '77 with Jeff Lowe - on recommendation from Greg (brothers - George is a cousin). Jeff lead it and 'proclaimed' it 11.c/d, rather than the 5.10+ Greg had lead us to believe.
