Route Description:

As you come up the canyon, "Couture" is the first full height seam/crack marked by the 2nd large Oak at the top on Wall 5, just past "Ant Spasms."

A combination of thin crack, to non-existent crack, and face climbing take you straight up, veering to the left around some loose flakes just before the top (down and to the right of the Oak a smidge.)

When Ches and I got done with this route and it's neighbor, 'Face", Jeff came over to ask what we were going to call our routes. I replied, "How about 'Seam' for the Seam and 'Face' for the face on the left."

Jeff then looked to Ches.

"Sounds about right to me." Ches concurred.

When so many routes were going up in 'Panic Town'... sometimes you just draw a blank for a name. After a bit we decided in order to keep with the theme of 'Panique au Village' and we used the translation of the route names.

Pardon, moi? Où est "Le Couture"? Puis-je apporter des robes? Je préfère monter "le veine" de roche, ou "la filon." Ha-ha, oui, oui! May 21, 2014
