Description

Cornmeal Porridge takes the middle of the clean panel to the right of the Don'’t Rock My Boat slab. This has enjoyable moves and is similar in character to the bottom pitch of its cousin to the left. The last bolt is a bit to the left of the rest. A longer sling may help. The thin crux moves lie between and around bolts 2 and 3. Don'’t deviate too far from the line at the top, as some loose stuff lurks nearby.

Location

This is the bolted line on the righthand panel of the Recessed Slab.

Protection

6 bolts + 2-bolt anchor.

This route is fun. There is lots of lichen. I would have helped clean the rock, but I did not have a brush. Look hard for the best holds, because some are hidden and not obvious. Apr 1, 2015

I went straight up over the bolt line and thought it was way harder then any of the other 7's in the area. Maybe I needed to zig and zag more but think it was harder than Three Birds. Jul 23, 2016

Yeah, depending on the line you choose, could be 5.7 to 5.8+ or 5.9. Jun 10, 2017

Like the routes on East Wall, many fun variations with just moving a little right or left of the bolt line - which can make this a route requiring more thought and some fun moves after the 2nd bolt. Jun 11, 2017

I'm glad to see some other people thought this was harder than the other 7s at the Lower Tier. I struggled to find the right line from start to finish. Also, I think the runout is too much for a 5.7 from the last bolt to the anchor. There can't be more bolts put in because of the rock quality, and the rock at the anchor is a little sketchy for my liking. Not sure I'd recommend this one, since the other 7s around it are so much fun. Sep 8, 2017

Left anchor bolt is spinning pretty good.

Stay left and the route is pretty easy, notably easier than Irie or Burning Bush. (or maybe I was just warmed up). Sticking to the bolt line looked harder.

The runout to the anchor is not bad, particularly as this is the easiest part of the climb with big holds. The last bolt is a ways off to the left and possible to miss if you're not looking for it. Put a sling on it. Oct 8, 2017

Climbed this Sunday, April 15th. There's a large flake (maybe 18" long, pointing right) at the end of the slab section that seems to be coming loose. Also, the flake under the anchors isn't wonderful. Both would make for a bad time for the belayer. Apr 16, 2018
