Carnival

5.10d, Sport, 30 ft,  Avg: 3.6 from 47 votes
FA: Dave Phillips
Texas > Austin Area > Reimer's Ranch… > Carnival Wall

Description

Really fun route. The start is pretty much 5.8 until you hit the fun crimps when you start working up from the completion of the traverse.

Location

Shares a start with Gypsy Wall's first route, Living on The Edge.

Protection

6 bolts with sport clip anchors. Also has two bolts behind the belay station to protect the belayer because the station is on a cliff and a climber fall might pull the belayer off.

Belay station anchors in blue. Carnival, Living on the Edge, and Love Potion No. 9 share the left belay station and first couple of bolts. Gypsy Rock uses the right belay station.
