Access Issue: DO NOT CLIMB HERE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!! Peregrine Falcon nesting in progress & State is closing crg Details


The stunning obvious golden wall on the left face opposite of Desparete. Start up a small corner, then make boulder moves out a bulge. Climb into a huge bomb bay corner reminiscent of a desert corner. Climb up a splitter crack through a roof, then onto a slab. The crux is at the very end move slightly right then up to the anchor.


10 Glue-ins to anchors. Definitely Spicy spacing on pro.


15' feet left of Desparete.


7 bolts to the anchor for 100'. Yep Spicy. Nov 17, 2014
Hunter is going to fix this. Nov 18, 2014

It appears that bolts have been added to address the R issue. The route is ready to be enjoyed by all...and man is it enjoyable Nov 23, 2015

Definitely the best route in CT. It has everything. It is long so you need endurance. The crux is scary, tough and at the end of the route. The route has a slab, three roofs one big and two smalls, two aretes, a traverse and some crag climbing. It is a dream route. if you are going to try the route, my recommendation is to go fresh, don't wait too much. May 21, 2016
Once you get past bolt #2 this route just shines. Well done Hunter. May 22, 2016

Fun climb. Nice 5.7-5.10 climbing until the holds disappear before the chains. Bit of rotten rock down low on this climb off to the right. It could've been my imagination, but the little ledge that gives the amazing rest after the first steep bit might be loose as well.. tread carefully. Jul 12, 2016

Awesome route ! Out of curiosity for the sake of doing the climb "correctly " , at the final clip does it traverse out right on crimps to the arete ? Or does it just go straight up Oct 15, 2016
Go right to the arête Oct 15, 2016

This is the best 5.11 at West Rock that I've climbed. Rock is solid enough, difficulty is pretty sustained, moves are amazing. Mar 4, 2018
