This is the steep clean face right of Hocus Focus that I have been walking past for 25 years. Stick clip, then climb fun crimpy moves up the increasingly difficult wall to a definite crux. Probably much harder for the short climber.…


5 bolts to lower off.

This Route is the Radical.
The description is true, shorties are going to be puzzled at the crux.
Setting up for the crux is tough. Aug 21, 2014

Super PSYCHED that I sent this route today! Super cool climb! It required a mix of techniques from power to core strengrh to balance! The crux features possibly the worst hand hold your apt to find on a 5.12! I would give it 12d if you are under 5'9". Seemed simiar in grade to my route 46 and 2 at the north west passage! Great climb! Jun 11, 2015
