Description

Climb the left-trending crack. The grade is approximate. Highball, top rope, or do a hard lead on gear. The FA claim may be wrong, but that is unlikely. It required deep cleaning for gear placements and hand holds in the crack. The FA was a pink point lead. Gear was placed on lead. Taller folks may find it easier.

Gear:
The gear is small TCUs (#2 and smaller to #00) and possible a nut or two if you get creative. These are tricky placements. There is potential groundfall if the lower gear blows, hence the PG-13. The crux is protected if it holds!

Location

It is left of Georgia.

Protection

A pad, spotter, or small gear.

I suppose it it could be called a redpoint, but I left, put the gear back in, and sent. Dark pink. Whatever. ;) Feb 25, 2017
Tim,

If you placed the gear on lead, wouldn't it just be a redpoint?

Looks fun.

Still a project. Led with one good gear placement protecting the long crux moves. Top out the crux section and upper slab unprotected unless you can dig out a crack and force a nut in. Toprope efforts so far. Could be 5.12. Feels like V5.

Update: the crack is pretty clean now. Nov 5, 2016
