Okay, now you've climbed Pervade and you see this squiggly crack to its left...and you ask "I wonder if I can climb that?" So, you go answer your own question and find out it's a bit wider than you thought, a bit looser than you thought, and a bit scruffier than you thought. So much for thinking.

If you are up there, you could climb this or maybe not.

The crux is probably getting into the crack which took two tries for me. It was a better balanced, left hand slap that worked. There are some loose bits still in this crack, but from reading the comments on Pervade, it sounds like some of the worst ones have been cleaned.

If this is your route, let me know and I'll update the info.


This is the wiggly thing just to the left of Pervade. There's an X'ed flake up high that pushes you back to the finish of Pervade.


It's probably better to TR this, but if you were sort of sick in the head, maybe you'd bring up some of those big ' #5 Camalots or #2 or #3 or #5 Bigbros. If so, you might want to speak with someone.

I was actually just thinking "I wonder if I could climb that" when I was belaying someone on Pervade...damn, looks like someone beat me to it. Love your description though haha. Oct 10, 2013
I thought this was a fun line and a safe lead. For gear, I took double 4s and a single 5 and didn't need anything larger. Also, I don't think I placed anything smaller than a #2. Aug 30, 2015
