Description

This is an excellent vertical outing up a beautiful section of the cliff. First envisioned as a headpoint, this route is destined to become a neo-classic with the addition of bolts.

Location

Begin with the traditional 1st pitch of Vertigo (5.9). Where the second pitch begins to steepen, place a good cam and head out and up to the bolt on the right. Four more bolts with a few optional pieces of gear lead to a horizontal. Either traverse left to the Vertigo ledge belay or bust 5.10 moves through the small roof(or step right then back left) and clip the first bolt on the last pitch of the Doub-Griffith. Proceed to summit on this climb. You get bonus points for finishing on the new Schlauch Direct, 5.12a, 2 bolts on the arete. It is a mega 70m pitch!

Protection

5 bolts plus a standard Eldo rack. A 0.5 tri-cam is perfect in a pocket between 3rd and 4th bolt. A #4 cam is also nice to have at the horizontal break at the top.

Hmmm... an R rated newly installed route? Apr 9, 2016

You definitely don't want to blow it between bolts 3 and 4. I found the route super devious with a ton of lichen and no chalk :) This thing would be hard to onsight! Overall, worth doing. The movement is nice. All about the footwork and balance! Definitely link it to Doub Griffith and the Schlauch Direct! So good! Apr 9, 2016

We noticed the tri-cam placement, but going for this lead onsight, I'd give it R-.

I also imagine it hadn't been climbed in a while, because it was overgrown with lichen. I really enjoyed the climbing!

Just needs a little cleaning! Apr 8, 2016

I must have missed all the gear placements between the bolts...or maybe there aren't any. Top notch route with a good amount of spice. I think a 2 or 3 would also work in the horizontal. Dec 10, 2014

Great new addition to Eldo! Really tricky and exciting sequences that have to be climbed to be believed. I did the whole 65m mega pitch which enters into the Doub Griffith right at the crux arete climbing... and then took the 12a direct finish. A heads up: the crux move is pulling up 60 meters of rope to clip the last bolt. It would have probably been more fun and "less of a drag" to belay off of two of the lead bolts on D.B. or something.

Thanks to Eric for his vision and work on this great new line! Lots of consistent 5.11 climbing. A bit sporty but not dangerous. Red point grade is probably 5.11b, but expect 5.11+ for the on-sight. There is at least one move which is less than obvious. Jun 11, 2014

Nice job, Eric! This is a great addition to that particular chunk of rock. Definitely 5.11+ on a TR. SS Jun 11, 2014
