Description Suggest change

Starts after the 20 first pitches of Salathé.

Crux is definitely the "Down Climb" (12c)

"The Move" pitch is really easier than 5.13a if you're tall

"Chickenwing" the start is R just above the belay

"Golden desert" is about 5.12

"The A5 traverse" is about 5.12c/d

"Razorblades" pitches are scary but amazing!

Location Suggest change
