Description

Lone Pilgrim climbs directly up the center of the clean slab on the Lone Pilgrim Wall. Start from the obvious ledge and put your slab climbing hat on. A few thin but reasonable slab moves with sharp pocket features get you to the first bolt. Just before bolt 2, it's 'game on' as you will encounter a challenging and committing crux with almost nonexistent shallow pocket features transitioning from right to left. After the crux, easier but still sustained and consistent movement through pockets and a bulge gain the anchors. Steve Bechtel's 2011 guidebook gives this 11d, I say the crux is easily 12a when compared to other 11's and 12's in the area.

Location

In the middle of the Lone Pilgrim Wall, to the right of "Battle for a Wounded Knee" and "Only the Good Die Young"

Protection

6 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor

Fantastic pitch. Probably no 12a move, but very sustained at mid-to-hard 5.11. Certainly a 12a effort overall. Jul 5, 2016
