Description [Suggest Change]

Up Drafting is an eye catching pitch, loaded with bomber rock, unique terrain, and technical climbing for the grade. Add to that some sweet exposure on the arête up high, and you've got yourself a deluxe warm up, that you maybe should have warmed up for....

Start on large jumble of boulders in the center of the wall. A couple quick moves up a distinct rail leads to the first bolt. Enjoy the sculpted holds on the dual arête, then move left. Scamper up to a sloping break.

Some clever stemming, and then some engaging moves on the right arête lead to a final boulder problem. Pick your way to the anchors.

Location [Suggest Change]
