Description

This route was an open project until recently when it was done at 12b.

I have found that most hard climbers avoid the practice wall like the plague due to the short walls and easy routes but I would urge all of you to swing by for at least this route!

The Handout starts on a large right undercling when you reach out left to a worse undercling and throw a large cross to a good ledge. This incredibly fun move sets the tone for the rest of the route with a solid pump factor with some low percentage stabs to pockets, and a couple of bad pinches.

Great flow and awesome holds (in this climbers opinion) definitely make this route a must do at the grade!

Location

far left side of the roof section of practice wall. easily seen by its large undercling pocket start

I really enjoyed this line a lot, pretty sustained for such a short route, felt very sequential. Oct 25, 2012

So I did this route back in 2013 and the guidebook had it at 11d. Fun route all the same, but I don't think I was climbing that hard back then. Sweet pockets at the beginning and very dynamic start Aug 19, 2015

totally did this route very statically but it cost me my endurance by going a bit slower (being 5'9") until i came off the wall. that in combination with the crimpy pockets and long overhang...great route though for those seeking something harder at the Practice wall Nov 7, 2018
