Survival Enhancement is yet another excellent route at the Papoose, offering a well-protected variety of crack and slab climbing.

P1 (11c): Climb a crack to a bolt at about 10' and make a tricky mantel move. Link discontinuous cracks for another 30' until some thin slab takes you out right past a couple of bolts. Trend slightly left to the anchor. (20m)

P2 (11b): Climb the hand crack for about 40' until you can clip a bolt located in a patch of very smooth white rock. Move up to a horizontal break on good holds and make a long reach to a so-so finger lock that is used to pull the mini-roof. Once over the roof, move right onto the face in an airy position and climb past two bolts to join the top of P2 of Centrefold. A great pitch (30m)

P3 (10a): Climb the 3rd pitch of Centrefold.

Descent: either walk off to the north, or 4 30m raps will get you down


The start is located 10m left of Centrefold. It is identified by a single bolt at about 10'. Note: there is a new climb about 5m left of Centrefold (with 2 bolts down low). This pitch goes at about 10d and will also get you to the top of P1


A single rack from blue Metolius to #2 Camalot, with doubles for the finger size stuff
