Description

One of the finer and more traveled 9s at Crystal Wall. Fun and steep climbing through some long, juggy pulls leads to a few moves of 9+ technical crux before the chains.

  • There is currently a flake between bolts 2 & 3 which may or may not need to be pitched at a later date. It's "X-ed", but use good judgment if you decide to yard on it.

Location

The route is currently at the far left of the North Face and takes the flake system to the yellow arete right of Orange Crimpsicle up the prominent and steep, yellow/orange arête.

Protection

9 camo'd bolts to chains.

This is a really good one. Fight the pump, and push to the finish. Fun climbing the entire way. Jul 26, 2015

Excellent route. Still a little dirty, but it will only get better as it sees more traffic. Jun 7, 2012

A must do. Heads up: pack a helmet for the belayer (caught 3 fist-sized rocks last time) and a brush for the lichen and dirt. Will be one of the better routes out there at the grade. Jul 24, 2011
