Description

To “frisk a drag” means finding a safe place to hunker down after hopping a train. This is a clever little line that starts to the left of Late for the Gravy Train. Stem up into the large black scoop, and work up through the weakness to a sloping ledge on the right.

Depending on your wingspan, either layback the left arete feature, or for better climbing, bump back and forth between that and face holds on the bolt line. After finding your place to ride, the crux still waits for you above. 

You can, if so desired lower off LFTGT and hang a TR or draws on this line. Having the face holds chalked is an extra treat as they are hard to see when it’s squeaky clean.

Location

In between Redball and Late for the gravy Train.

Protection

7 Bolts, 2 bolt chain anchor with ClimbTech Mussy Hooks on ledge.
