Description

Survivin' expert!

This route was put up on lead over 3 days and involved a few aid falls even. It ended up being very well-protected (maybe a tad over protected) but very good nonetheless. The route is easily identified by a large, left-facing corner starting at bolt 5. This corner is clean, fun, and probably the crux of the sustained route. Clip long slings on bolts 8 and 16 and also on the two pins at the roof near the top of the route. The pins were great when we did the route, but be sure to check them before clipping them. The second one has a nice tied off hero loop to clip. There are opportunities to back these pins up with medium wires and small cams.

Location

This route is now the farthest left route on the wall. There are a few good newer routes between here and the Obtuse corner. Bearfoot is just right of the major arete at the end of the left side of the wall, left of these newer routes.

Protection

16 quickdraws and 4 shoulder runners to a bomber 1/2" coldshut and chain anchor.

THIS ROUTE REQUIRES A 70 METER ROPE TO LOWER.

We removed some big blocks up and right on the top of the route; however, be vigilant as the upper section of the climb still has loose rock to either side of the easiest climbing. Also, keep this in mind when lowering or rapping.

This climb is not in The Grove, it's past the Strategery Buttress, FYI. Watch out for loose rocks past the pitons, I almost killed my belayer. Fun route, it needs some cleaning. It's like toprope lead climbing! Jun 1, 2015
