Description

The "Wabash Line" is a mythical rail line that appears when a hobo needs it most and can take them anywhere they want to go.... Hopefully to Sendtown. All aboard!

Start to the left of Road Sister. Nimble your way through a thankfully short chossy section at the start. Check your holds. After that the rock and the climbing both get tremendously better as the wall gets steeper and steeper. Follow the faint dihedral executing intriguing off balance moves. A good long huck between big holds guards the final pull over the bulge and if you are shorter this may be more of a full dyno. There is a meaty sloper jug way out right and a bit lower, but you would still need a pretty good wingspan to make it useful. However, the jug over the lip is huge and solid. Enjoy the swing, and scamper up beautiful solid rails to the anchor.

You can lower off Road Sister to access the anchors for hanging draws or an easy TR.

Location

Last route on the left side of this wall. Left of Road Sister

Protection

7 bolts, 2 bolt anchor with ClimbTech Mussy Hooks.

There is a good sized block near the top/middle of the route that should probably be pryed off its covered in chalk but starting to get loose and might hit the belayer. Jun 13, 2017
