Overboard

Description

Another nice, short climb, newly added to the Kurt Russell Block. Good sequence of moves down low. The crux comes moving past the third bolt, which I think earns it a 10a.

I'm putting this up as "Overboard" in keeping with the theme--though I don't know the FA on this. There's just too many "unknown" lines here already....

Location

The first bolted route on the second section of the block.

Protection

4 bolts, with a single shut at the top.

Nice pockets and pinches lead up to the third bolt. The crux is moving past the third bolt (there's a fourth bolt just over the ledge before you get to the shut).

[Hide Comment] I know grades only matter to a certain degree, but I thought this was harder than 10a. I thought this was the hardest line on the new section, and more difficult than 'Unknown 8' which is on here at 10b/c. Also there's a white shape in the rock that looks like the southern border of texas. Feb 24, 2014

[Hide Comment] I have to agree with the Siberia's comment. This line definitely felt more difficult than the farthest left line, which is rated 10b/c. Apr 22, 2014
[Hide Comment] I think Johnny Arms put up all of these in this area. Mar 26, 2017
