Fight Club (Round Two)

5.12b, Sport, 50 ft,  Avg: 3.5 from 15 votes
FA: Micah Klesick
Oregon > Willamette Valley > Garden > Garden Cliffs

Description

Cool 5.10 climbing up to the overhang. Work out and up to the start of the steep moves at the 2nd hanging draw, and power through pretty good holds to a large fin jug. Once there, figure out the final technical crux to the anchor! This climb has a large variety of different styles packed into it. Rad route and well worth sending!!

FYI: At the start of the overhang is a large block/jug that may move if grabbed wrong. I've tried multiple prybars to get it out, and had no luck, so it's in there good.

Location

Pretty obvious route going through a steep overhang, with fixed draws on it. On the upper section of the cliff, 5th or 6th route from the trail

Protection

bolts. Will have fixed draws

There is a pretty good kneebar up there if you're into that sort of thing.

[Hide Comment] The crux sequence is a 10' section that would go at around v5 as a boulder problem. The rest of the route is very easy by comparison, but climbing is stellar throughout. Sep 21, 2016
[Hide Comment] Brilliant crux sequence. Powerful for the grade. And it ain't over when you grab the jug! Tricky up there.

Nice work Micah! Jul 10, 2017

[Hide Comment] Great route at a great spot! Much appreciation to everyone who put in time and effort developing this little treasure of a crag. The bulge at the top of the route spit me off more than once but it's well bolted and you have clean falls. The gear is already there so you might as well give it a shot:) Jul 21, 2018
