Easement to Blanco River Trail Details

Description

This is on the Lower Tier: Right Cliffband.

Follow 3 black hangers up a tan face to a roof. Pull the roof (crux) and work up, and right, at the second roof onto the steep slab above. Follow up to anchor for Drunken Bolting and Lichen It. I've only done this on TR, and it feels like 5.12-. If anyone nails it, let me know.

Protection

6 bolts and a couple of mid-sized cams to protect the roof move.

Fun line with great movements on the lower slab, the crux is definitely pulling the first roof. Look for hidden undercling/sidepull to the bottom right where it starts to bulge, then you can reach out and up to a thin edge. Definitely pretty crumbly though, would be sweet if Jesse got a lower anchor below the choss roof, for sure some of the best rock there! Jun 25, 2016

The route up to the roof past three black hangars is a great, albeit short 11a with some of the best rock on the wall. I found the roof to be crumbly, sharp and not a lot of fun so I threw in the towel on that. Ray gave me the thumbs up to add a lower topanchor below the chossy roof so it might end up getting a shorter finish variation keeping it all on good stone. Jul 24, 2012
