Description

Fun climbing takes you past a couple big pockets and holes out the steep right side of Hadrian's Wall.

If you stay high, it's probably 5.8+ or 5.9-. If you stay low, it's 5.9+ ish. Stay in the middle and it's 5.9.

Location

The steep route that's on the far right side of the wall.

Protection

5 bolts to anchors.

If you live in the Avenues and you only have a half hour to get outside, you might as well give this one a shot. It wasn't half bad - I really enjoyed the first few moves. There's still a lot of loose rock, so watch out. Mar 21, 2013

"Just observing that it likely isn't worth bolting lines that just won't ever clean up."

Worth it for who? It was worth it for me. This is my favorite route on the wall and I've climbed it a couple times now. I haven't had any footholds break on me when I've climbed it but yeah, the rock down low is bad so I'm not surprised.

As always, your mileage may vary. That holds particularly true for the choss. Apr 17, 2012

I'm not advocating any reinforcing, and I did end up climbing well above the bolt line. Just observing that it likely isn't worth bolting lines that just won't ever clean up. Apr 16, 2012

Why don't you try standing on the hand holds then?
And reinforcing? I hope this isn't a suggestion... If it is let's hope it falls on deaf ears.

This is City Creek. Let the choss live free. Apr 16, 2012

The bad rock is less manageable on steeper terrain like this without doing some reinforcing. The hands are reasonably good but I kept blowing foothold after foothold. Apr 11, 2012
