Description Suggest change

Late for the Gravy Train is a striking mixed moderate that is sure to get your engines firing and make you hungry for more. Perhaps the best sub 5.10 warmup at the crag because it’s easy on the toes with good stemming in the first 2/3 of the route which is followed by a little more technical climbing at the end. 

Start up a slabby featured seam 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 Suggest change

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

Protection Suggest change

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