Description

Never Ending Night Train is a unique trad pitch, which tackles some surprisingly steep terrain. This line climbs the first half of Tin Roof Sunday. Just below the roof, move right following the obvious weakness, passing great holds, but awkward stances for placing gear. Continue to follow the crack as it turns rather splitter, and bends it's way to the top of the crag.

The grade is more a reflection on the pump you get trying to get good gear in the heavily textured crack. That, and it climbs steep. Please help us with the consensus.

If you are fond of the West Elden trad lines, then you will probably enjoy this rumble in the jungle. It almost feels like a Gunks route.

Starts on Tin Roof Sunday

Protection

Well, I found .5 and .75 BD Camalots to be the most useful, and I would bring three of each next time. Also, a single set from .3 through #3. Highly recommend a fist full of long runners.

There were numerous bats screaming at me when I started the splitter that trends up and right. I was able to retreat to the right (WAY right) to different anchors, pretty sketchy. Hope the bats find a different home soon, that crack is so splitter. Aug 15, 2012

I didn't lead this one, but when on the splitter was guessing that it'd be a tough lead for we less tall folks! The move's very committing and the feet are dicey. Would probably up the rating a notch, but I only make rating suggestions after an on-sight as that's the truest guesstimate I believe. Other ratings seemed right on for the 4 I led. Jul 22, 2012
