Description

Another worthwhile addition to the awesome v5-v8's in Devil's Den. Start same as Feeling for the Heavens and follow it for a few moves. A about 2/3 of the way up, traverse right on good edges towards the obvious scoop. Cross to the scoop and make a scary deadpoint to a good crimp up and right. Snag the lip and top out. Not quite as good as it's classic neighbor, but still a blast.

Location

The obvious overhang on the part of the Walrus that faces the trail. It starts same as Feeling for the Heavens, but traverses right midway up.

Protection

A few pads and a spotter. The landing isn't bad but the crux comes way up at the top.

A few of us did the right arete on this boulder and it ended up climbing much better than it looked. Aside from the sharp left hand start hold and the questionable rock quality up high it was a very worth while climb. The variation is also good but a bit of a forced line imo. Here is some footage I got of Gavin on the right arete. youtube.com/watch?v=JQx6LRM… May 20, 2017
