Description

I can only personally attest to the first pitch, but Habanero starts off with excellent, pocketed climbing with big throws and fun moves.

The pitch breakdown is: 5.12b, 5.12a, 5.12, 5.12, 5.13, and 5.12d.

Location

Next climb left of Hurdy Gurdy Man starting next to an old tree at the base.

One of the best 5.12's at the Outrage Wall. The first two pitches (both 12b in my opinion) are known as "Habanero" and the 4 pitch extension after that is known as "Time for Livin,'" which is a great route in its own right. I noticed a lot of people just doing the first pitch, but some locals told me that the "true" Habanero is linking the two together in one long 60m pitch. Either option is great so do whatever you think is best for you, but pay attention to rope drag if linking the two- it can be a bitch higher up! Jan 19, 2017

Pitch One Only - Killer moves on this one!! A nice change of pace from the typical edging at EPC. Technical climbing with some athletic long reaches thrown in the mix, culminating with a spicy finish. A worthy project; hope to come back for the RP someday! Nov 25, 2018
