Description

Similar to Therapy Session but a bit harder and longer. Bouldery crux getting to the first bolt (stick clipped). As you climb past the bolt use the undercling pocket where a metal pipe was and climb to the jugs out left. A couple of cool 5.10 sections dot the middle of the climb. Then a bit of an endurance crux at the end finishing with another exciting mantle onto the patio just before the anchors.

Location

Located to the right of Therapy Session. Start to the right of the vertical rock rib that extends down to the ground.

Protection

6 bolts to mussy hooks at the anchor. Stick clip the first bolt.

Sustained with cryptic beta. Super fun climb though I dug using the runnel. Skipped the undercling pocket with the pipe. Your donated stick clip is still present. Afternoon shade to boot! Mar 8, 2014
I believe the stick clip is appropriate for the first bolt due to the particular height of hard moves off the ground. I also found the rock quality a bit suspect for a potential lower bolt placement. I donated an extra stick clip pole for the climb that hopefully doesn't get stolen....it is located at the base of the climb. Also note there is a slight runnout to the 2nd bolt but the climbing is easy. Feb 3, 2014
