If you happen upon the Uberfall on a day when there is nobody on Horsemen, Apoplexy or Coronary give this a go (Use your discretion).

Start as you would for Horseman and climb to the start of the corner. Traverse right (instead of left) and make balancey moves into the first short right-facing Apoplexy corner. From here keep working up and right following path of least resistance until you reach two dirty, vertical parallel cracks. Up the cracks and left into another right-facing corner system with a finger-size crack. End at the bolts over Coronary.


Start as you would for Horseman


Standard rack. Bring long runners and this is quite an enjoyable climb.

You don't go to the to "top of the corner" on Horseman. It's barely a bodylength up the corner as I recall (and per the guidebook photo).

This is an old route that's hard to justify with today's climber traffic being as heavy as it is. May 22, 2015

Totally right. Should have proof read that. I meant the start of the corner. Yes if it's busy you aren't going to do it, but are you suggesting not to climb it because too many climbers are around? Use your judgement. Don't do it if you are going to interfere with another party who is there first. Just like every other climb anywhere else? High Exposure is an old route with high climber traffic and it interferes with Directissima and Doubleissima unless climbers on those routes rap off and don't finish the last pitch on High E.

Balancy and committing middle. Accidentally, went up the dihedral for Apoplexy instead of the dihedral for Coronary. I'm naming this variation "Ponyplexy." May 27, 2016
I traversed early in the Horseman corner where there was a good little ledge for feet. I actually thought the corner near the end was tougher than the traverse, but perhaps that was because at ~6' I could reach from good hold to good hold on the traverse?

And there still are times when nobody is on Horseman, Apoplexy or Coronary. Nov 6, 2017
