Description

Argued to be the best of the grade at Foster Falls. I would agree. The climbing is pretty continuous and interesting with a wide variety of moves - crimps, jugs, flakes and even a mono pocket! Jihad!

Location

Just to the right of a (seasonal) waterfall on the Wall of Useless Conflict.

Protection

12 or so bolts, anchors

Pure fun, with some heady moves up top! This is my favorite of the grade at Fosters. Aug 25, 2014

It may be useful to bring a couple of longer draws to reduce rope drag over some small ledges. Feb 25, 2017

Great climb, would highly recommend. Sep 24, 2017
Decent route, but absolutely heinous to hang the draw off the last ledge leading up to the top of you have under a 6 foot reach. I'm pretty short, so hanging draws off a ledge stance is often difficult for me, but generally I find a safe enough way to do it. The bolt below to protect the fall is in a giant detached rock that is also hollow sounding almost everywhere on it. The moves to get off the ledge involve a left hand crimp that will be pulled off at any time, making the moves off the ledge very dangerous if you aren't able to clip the bolt from the appropriate stance. Not to mention all of the hangers are facing down instead of sideways. Dec 19, 2017
