Description

A great line with an amazing starting sequence!

Stand start with a sharp right undercling and left hand on the arête, foothold is just below left arête. Committing reach with left hand to slopey corner of arête. Dyno / deadpoint to small hold with right hand. Left foot pushes off of flake to help with the crux: matching on the small hold. Right hand shoots out to sharp flake on the right side of the face, and a final bump to a great jug finishes the route.

Once gaining the small hold with the right hand, there are many ways to get to the final jug. Matching on the small hold and bumping to the jug, climbing the left arête and crossing over, or a combination of both are all possible, making the last half of the route open to interpretation and beta-dependent.

Location

On the bodacious boulder, the side facing the marsh. The starting holds nearly put you into the tree on the left side. Just next to 'Bench Warmers'.

Protection

Pad and possibly spotter for the end of the route

Some different footage of the route, along with a variant on the initial beta.

This route has a lot of poor quality rock on the face, and it could use some scrubbing at the top. Not really worth a full star but not a bomb either. 1/2 a star... Sep 15, 2015
