Description [Suggest Change]

Think the routes on the D.C. Boulder are a joke because of their diminutive stature? Well There is nothing funny about Angle of Attack. This route, short and insecure, is raging with Napoleon complex. Its angry, really angry, and it will try to spit you off every chance it gets.

Travel up the 45 degree arete, slapping slopers with your left hand, heel hooking, and utilizing some nice pockets with your right hand. A technical and commiting crux awaits you just below the anchor. Take care in clipping the dicey third bolt.

It may be short, but its much more action packed than most 100' sport lines.

Wow, this thing is wayyyy harder than All the Way Baby! A true arete climb that deserves more traffic than it gets. Apr 13, 2014

This thing does not let up! Opening jugs lead to an onslaught of powerful moves and a rapidly building pump. Step off the ground and turn on the throttle if you want to clip the chains with victory! Aug 24, 2015
