Description

Listed in the Bigfoot Guide as another open project (with a very inappropriate name), I hopped on it hoping to climb and re-name it. Thankfully, Nic got an FA, gave it a new name, and brought some life into this thing! Continue past the anchor for Half-Leeper, cutting right with delicate moves over a ledge. With that much rope out, you've never been so happy to see such closely spaced bolts. The last 40' is consistently very technical on untraveled rock and very very tenuous in for most of the way, with the occasional half rest. The crux comes around 20' from the end. The route has a lot of lichen, and likely hasn't seen more than a few attempts since it was put up. Climb it and clean it up for me, er, I mean for us.

Location

Start up the Leper and keep right.

Needs some loving with a wire brush (as do most climbs at the grotto) but the movement is top notch! Jun 2, 2017
