Description

Hard moves right from the get-go. Power your way up the proud arête that overhangs the road by 8 feet. Most mortals will take advantage of the single bolt anchor up top for top-roping. Whether you TR or highball, plan on using some traffic control and avoid trying this during rush hour.

Yeah, DG has this one. He still cranks, by the way.

There's a Youtube video of Bernd climbing this rig, and I think it's the only video-record of someone sending—hence the misconstrued info. Apr 22, 2013
Not sure why Bernd is credited with the FA? Without question, Dave Griffith owns that particular accolade.

Also, the way people stack pads these days, I'd be surprised if someone hadn't done a ground-up ascent in the last few years. It's hard, but it's not exactly cutting edge. Apr 22, 2013
For one of the most visually striking and hardest highballs in SB, we get no description?

Try this one on for size:

Hard moves right from the get-go, 5.12c. Sit-start reportedly goes at 5.13a. Power your way up the proud arête that overhangs the road by 8 feet. Most mortals will take advantage of the single bolt anchor up top for top-roping. Whether you TR or highball, plan on using some traffic control and avoid trying this during rush hour. According to O11, this line has never seen an unrehearsed, unroped send. Maybe you can be the first.

In all my years I spent in SB, I have never once seen even a trace of chalk above the 10' mark. Apr 17, 2013
