Description

Climb the first few bolts of Decompression Sickness and traverse left to gain the clean orange face and roof of The Bends.

Location

Variation of Decompression Sickness. Locate the orange face capped by a 3-4 foot roof, directly above the natural tunnel.

Protection

Bolts to shuts.

Can also be led as a mixed route. Gain the face by leading up the loose, gear-protected corner, starting on the chossy pedestal near the natural tunnel. The corner takes cams ranging from fingers-tight hands, med-large nuts).

Great variation on Decompression Sickness. Where Decompression turns into juggy knobbiness for the last ~15 feet, The Bends goes left and adds some fun face climbing and a roof. Took me a bit to figure out the beta on both sections . . . which I won't give away :) I'll just say that the holds are there, keep looking. Oct 6, 2014
