Description

You will find Bitten in the blocky corner where the steep pillar joins the rest of Main Wall. (3rd bolt line from the right). Start up the ugly corner of chossy looking blocks. The first half of the climb is 5.11 and below- gymnastic and fun!. After a no-hands rest, the business begins. Steep 5.12 climbing is capped by a steeper roof and a hard boulder problem. The last clip at the roof is desperate, most choose to skip it. This is a Deep Creek classic!

Location

3rd bolted line from the right on Main Wall. After the no-hands rest, clip the 7th bolt then split off from Spineless, moving up and right. Shares the boulder problem finish of Quiver (13c).

Protection

10 perma-draws to chains with lower-off biners on top. All the permadraws on this route have new dogbones and steel biners as of July 2015. As with all permadraw-equipped routes, you should still check the biners for grooving as you climb!

I'm not sure I'd refer to Bitten as an "endurance" line. There are plenty of rests including a no-hands getting to the jug-rest prior to the final section which is basically a boulder problem. My frustration in working for my redpoint was repeatedly falling off the high boulder problem without being significantly fatigued. Unless you're sick-strong, don't even bother with the last clip on redpoint. A Deep Creek, rite-of-passage. Sep 1, 2011
