Description

Begin up the clean grey shield using a big side pull rail. Climb past a big coffin shaped feature to some larger holds and eventually an undercling. The crux is passing this blank section. Great holds and fun moves await leading up to the steep ending. Great side pulls and some lie back moves deposit you at the chains.

This route was started circa 1993? by a seasonal river guide named Marty Holtmeyer, but never finished. He bolted, on aid, up four bolts and stopped at the blank section. He left a screw link and a copperhead mashee and bailed, never to return. As this wall began to fill with new routes over the past couple seasons, I decided to have a look at the ending to offer a finish to what had been started long ago. As is almost always the case there was an obvious line of holds and great climbing to be found. The addition of 6 new bolts and some beefy chains and we now have a good warm up for the rougher climbs surrounding it. Come check it out!
