Description

Late for the gravy Train is a long, beautifully solid mixed moderate, that is sure to get your engines firing and make you hungry for more. Start up a slabby featured crack which will deposit you into a steep blocky section passing a bolt on the left at mid height. Keep chugging up the blocky dihedral, clipping a bolt out right before mantling onto a sloping ledge on climber’s left.

Take a rest before the vertical head wall as it is a bit technical for the grade. The intended path off the ledge is to traverse right over open air to the right of the bolt line past a deep jug, a couple small positive crimps, and one great foothold that keeps it in the grade. Continue up past one more little crux move to bigger holds at the anchor.

Location

To the right of Frisk A Drag, look for distinct thin crack.

Protection

Single set to #1 or #2, med/large wires, 3 bolts, runners, 2 bolt chain anchor with ClimbTech Mussy Hooks.

I found the section before the first bolt to be a bit tricky but i went straight up the corner, where it looks like most people move left. Sep 29, 2013

Now that i see the description to stay right at the bolts...do that. I went straight up and it felt way harder than 5.9 Jun 17, 2016
