DescriptionA awesome line up the Illusion Wall. Very Classic. It runs up for 10 pitches. All bolts have a good stance for clipping.
1: 5.8. The approach pitch that will get you to the real climbing, ends at the 4th Class ledges. Trends up and left from the start.
2: 4th class. Traverse across the ledges until you reach the first set of bolted anchors. Short.
3: 5.10+. Starts off on some stiff face climbing leading to a nice 5.9 corner crack.
4: 5.10+. Follow the bolts up for more face climbing. The only pitch that is all bolted.
5: 5.9+. Start out going left and up to find a nice finger crack that lead you to the belay station just right of the signature flake.
6: 5.9. Signature pitch. Short and sweet. Takes you out left, underclinging the Excalibur flake. Go up and around to the bolted anchors (no chains)
7: 5.10-. More face climbing and small cracks lead you to the next anchors.
8: 5.10+. Has some small finger cracks, with a short traverse right.
9: 5.9. Has an awesome corner that appears harder than it is. Most rappel from the top of this pitch.
10: Easy 5th Class. Dirty. Just another pitch that gets you to the top of the wall.
To Descend: Rappel the route. Use only the bolted stations that have chains.
