Parallel Universe is a superb thin crack and face climbing pitch with techy stemming that climbs like a Waterfall route. The stone is solid and the air is clean.

On the east side (climber’s left) of the Pillar Wall. Rap in 80’ to a good sloping ledge with a vertically staggered two bolt belay. There is an anti zipper bolt low on the pitch.

From the belay move up and left to access the crack. Enjoy some truly fabulous holds, and excellent non technical stemming for the first half of the route. After that things get a little steeper and a whole lot more powerful. Figure out a tricky little move to access the left hand seem, and then move past several boulder problems, and a final pump crux at the end of the stem box. Move past block, and into finger crack. Exit out left to a good jug (#3 TCU just to the right). Mantel out to the top of the wall.


Far climber's left of the Pillar Wall


Single set from #0 TCU through #.5 Camalot. Small/medium wires. Draws, long draws.

A tad reachy if you are 5'6" but fun. you can wander a bit right or go straight up to one of the bolts. I wandered right then back as JMo did. He later TR'd it straight up to the bolt and said it was really good too. Sep 28, 2015
