Description

The Kokanee Corner is an unreal test piece for a desert tower. 3 incredible pitches make this route one of the best lines in the desert! You gotta have all the tricks for this beast -- Crimping, ninja stemming, OW and everything in-between.

P1. Climb Egg Drop Soup 5.12

P2. The money pitch! The first half of this pitch is bolted and the second half is all gear. This pitch has 3 main sections and they are all unique. The hardest moves of the pitch are found in the first three bolts with a V6 strait into a V8ish boulder problem on very thin holds with poor feet. A few bolts of easy climbing with a nice rest lead to a very wild 5.12 stem with a V3 exit move. The final section of this pitch is both the redpoint and mental crux -- after clipping the last bolt bust a mantle into the start of the corner. Totally insane stemming and wild body english are involved for this section. A few key thin finger locks give a few shakes but the whole crux of the corner is less than tips. The corner finally opens up towards the end to good fingers to the anchor -- A full on 40m pitch!

P3. 5.12 finger crack with a very cool boulder problem off a hand jam. Finish on the last OW pitch on Sacred Space.

Location

80 Meter rope is crucial for working the crux pitch.

Nice Hayden! I've seen the bolts right of Sacred Space shining in the sun from below for years and have wondered what it was... Looks like an outrageous position! Apr 16, 2014
