Description

Please leave a comment if you know of any original name for this climb.

Technically straight-forward face climbing up a series of shallow crimps and slopers. Despite being probably the shortest route in the area, is decidedly the most challenging I've tried. By far the most difficult part is dealing with the coarseness/sharpness of the rock in this feature. Your next challenge is actually finding the holds, as given the course grain here the small protrusions you need to pull yourself up will blend in with the face. If you can get over the pain, a couple of interesting bouldering moves will put you at the top.

Location

Top section of the wall, immediately left of a right-leaning finger crack, and left of a small, short hand-crack and an obvious 2-foot deep ledge. Start on the left-most side of the ledge

Washboard is a good name for this route. The holds really tear up your fingers, I would recommend bringing some tape if you plan on doing this route. Oct 1, 2017
