Night Vision

5.11d, Trad, 50 ft,  Avg: 2.3 from 3 votes
FA: Steve Mankenberg
Minnesota > Tettegouche SP… > Palisade Head

Description

Night Vision is a steep finger-tips crack in a left-facing dihedral. Climb the corner on face holds, tips jamming, and stemming. The crack takes very good (small) gear. It's a nice, clean line, except the top out is a bit loose. Too bad it isn't longer.

Location

Night Vision is just to the right of KGB.

Protection

Small stoppers and cams.

[Hide Comment] It's a bit sketchy to setup the top-rope for, but the belay spot is just to the climber's right of the topout of KGB, up on a small, short rock pillar. You can sling some trees way back across the path and extend the anchor to that belay spot. Jul 10, 2018
[Hide Comment] My gear beta (really sewn up): #.5 C4 (just to prevent zippering), sling a flake (I didn't put any gear behind the detached flakes at beginning), nest of (#00 Mastercam, red C3, purple C3), #6 BD nut, blue totem, #5 DMM peenut, #.2 X4, black totem, #7 BD nut, #.1 X4. Sep 4, 2018
