Faking News climbs the right of two interesting groove features and gradually eases in difficulty as you near the chains.

Be ready for engaging climbing and tenuous clips right from the get go, but unfortunately half way up the climbing downshifts to 5.8 on relatively big holds before you are deposited at a nearly no hands stance to clip the chains at the base of an overhung and much less featured wall above.


Currently the rightmost climb - ends at 2/3 height.


7 bolts to lower-offs.

I recently heard the first hanger fell off of this route, and is stranded at the base. Someone HELP! Come armed with your 9/16" wrench and put it back on. Extra points if it is during a redpoint burn. Dec 18, 2017
