Description

Highly sustained, technical column/tufa pipe climbing. Pumptastic! FEET, FEET, FEET! Think Euro and work the sidepulls/half laybacks until you can grope desperate for the chains.

Technical note: A hard leader fall will yank the belayer off and into any unsuspecting wankers climbing on KalyPige to the left. So make sure you clip into the belay bolt located on the boulder at the bottom. It probably won't roll over and crush anyone.

Location

Extreme left side of Panorama, just left of the obvious Cigarillo, on top of the pedestal that stands above the last few lines in the Grand Grotto. Watch out for kicking rocks on the crowds below. Or? Or have some fun; pretend you're Thor, god of thunder.

Name is painted on wall.

Protection

Twelve-ish bolts + two bolt anchor with two steel TR 'biners.

They've moved some bolts around, so be careful if referencing an old guide. Easy to get lost among the tufas.

BETA: I found the redpoint crux to be near the last bolt or so, spoiled my onsight. While lowering off, I found a good no-hands kneebar a few moves below, which made this a pretty smooth RP for the second go. Jan 16, 2018
