DescriptionThis short and powerful route is another that would have a conga line if it were in Real Hidden Valley. Technical, powerful, and truly sport bolted at the difficult sections, In Contempt would be a great project for those tackling the hard 11's at Josh. That is, if you had ever heard of it.
The documented grade(s) of 11b and 11b/c in some guides shows that even in the late 90's, Josh could continue to demand respect.
LocationThis is on right hand side of the formation, climbing into an overhung corner. Easy moves lead to a traverse past a piece or two until the first bolt can be clipped. Technical and sometimes baffling sequences punch through a short, well-protected corner to the chains.
