Description

It’s hard to say which is the best line on this magnificent cliff, but this Kurt Albert masterpiece is certainly in the running. With impeccable stone, massive jugs throughout, and perfectly gymnastic movement, the climbing is engaging and memorable from bottom to top. An undercut start leads to easy liebacking along the obvious flake, and a good stance below the looming headwall. A surprisingly sequential series of long, monkey-like swings leads up the steep bulge. The holds just get bigger as the pump builds, resulting in a fantastic pump and a few desperate slaps pulling onto the coral slab.

Location

Begins up the obvious right-facing flake on the far right end of the cliff.

Protection

5 bolts to a high 1 Bolt anchor.

This could be 12a. I never really figured out the non-linear UIAA-to-YDS conversion. I wanted to give it 11d/12a but the database wouldn't allow that. It's UIAA 8, if you can figure out what that means in YDS, good for you! Nov 20, 2014
