Road & nearby private property Details
Please do your best to maintain good relationships with the people who own the land in this area. Do not drive your vehicle past the "private property" sign. Do not go up to the house to ask for directions to the crag. Do not ride your bike down the road. Please move immediately to the side of the road if any landowners are approaching in their vehicles.
DescriptionThe Real Deal is a sustained, face climbing testpiece that threads the needle between Reality Check and Is This for Real?
Start with a fun boulder problem to gain the large ramp, then head out on the face. The initial moves are gymnastic, with off-balance reaches between sidepulls and underclings. There is a decent shake at mid-height before the crux. The crux involves miniscule, rounded edges with poorly located feet. You'll want crisp conditions!
The FA adhered pretty strictly to the bolt line, and the proposed grade reflects that. One could certainly find bigger holds by deviating into the crack feature out left at the crux.
