A really good intro to Wall 2. The obvious straight-up crack gives you good moves with a couple of shelf cruxes and a flaring seam about halfway. Great fingers and edges throughout. Finish over the chockstone at the top. (Staying in the crack for the cruxes will get you the 5.7; using the face definitely brings the grade--and fun--down a bit.) The rap station is right there, making this a fun, quick lap before jumping on the more sporty "Barracudas!"


A rack of singles to 4" and a few extra finger pieces if you want to sew it up. (Pink, red & brown tri-cams and/or some offset nuts work well, too.)

Once you're down, make sure to pull rope left of the route. There's a semi-notorious crack that gobbles ropes up there if you pull straight down...

Like nearly all of the routes at Panic Town, this could turn into a great route with some more traffic! Ran a few laps on this one and never felt the need for a 4" piece. Jul 20, 2014

Well said, Eric. (The #4 was originally for building the anchor at the top before we put that rap rings in---I think. Who knows? Training weight at this point...) Jul 21, 2014
Its a surprisingly fun route that takes good gear. When placing be mindful of the rope eating crack 2/3rds of the way up as it can lead to some fun rope drag when bringing up your second. Jun 7, 2016
