Pack Mentality

5.13-, Trad, 100 ft (30 m),  Avg: 3.6 from 5 votes
FA: J Unema, B McCord, J Snyder
Arizona > Northern Arizona > Sycamore Canyon > Volunteer Canyo… > S Side > 2. E End Wall

Description

Committing and improbable moves lead to much easier, but engaging and steep climbing in the second half.

Location

Pack Mentality shares a start with Nightwalker and traverses left along an obvious horizontal rail around 35 feet up. From here, it continues up the obvious thin seam, staying right of Rapture, and left of Nightwalker.
The route can also be started off the right side of the Rapture belay pillar.

Protection

This route was first freed with all natural protection, including several marginal loweballs protecting (or falling out) at the crux. After sending, the FA party added two bolts to protect the crux. Bring a double set of cams from 000 C3 to #.75 C4 with a healthy set of nuts.
