DescriptionAs the hardest route at Area 37, Keardo is likely the most overlooked route at the crag. (I know I passed underneath it countless times before giving it go.) It's a fun line with unique movement down low to a tough, pumpy and sharp crux bulge past the last bolt to the anchors.
The lower portion of the route involves sneaky moves between nice, positive holds past the first six bolts to a good rest. Get psyched and ready to bust out committing and difficult moves through the bulge above. Clip the last bolt next to the shallow groove and gun it up into the sharp finger crack. Crank hard as you leave the mental safety of the last bolt up a few moves to better holds above and the anchors.
If you're looking for a fun 5.10+/5.11- (a.k.a. Keardo Lite), move right at the seventh bolt and clip the brown-painted anchors off to the right.
LocationBetween The InBetween and Cherry Pickin'. The crux groove and bulge above is a good landmark.
