Description

Ya gotta love The Danks! Here is another forever-long climb that has some really cool, thoughtful-throw provoking, super-fun creative moves through jugs, crimpers and miles upon miles of pockets that simply need to be linked together in one streamless flow of consciousness.

Hint! 70% of all the best holds on this route are on the left side of the bolt line. Take that into consideration when you are trying to send.

Location: Lower Danks

This is the first climb on the right side of the biggest, baddest buttress in The Danks. Walk another 30 feet to the right to an isolated alcove if you want to get on a 5.11c route called Faded.

Protection

A dozen draws and a knot in the end of your 60 meter rope. Probably one of the more intermediate of the elevens. Definitely not as run out as The Blunt Arete or Party Foul.

edit* this route gets little traffic and became silty over time. Some of the pockets have a little ecosystem growing in them, fauna and flora alike. There is great stone underneath and thought provoking movement that's a bet nebulous at times. Jul 17, 2015

  • edit. This route is awesome! Just be prepared to grin and bear the grit that may accumulate over the winter and spring if you are going for onsight. Or just brush a few holds and prepare yourself for a fun red point.
