Description

Not your usual Powerlinez climbing. Handholds for the traverse on the wall of the cave are non-positive or non-obvious; Footholds almost non-existent.
. . (and if the follower falls, good luck getting back on the route).

. . (I have not yet climbed most of this. So the difficulty and quality and protection ratings are my best current guess based on reports from other people.

Into the cave and up in it. Traverse on right wall and exit around right outside corner. Diagonal right up wide crack to top.
. . (likely more interesting to exit the diagonal crack before its end and finish on the small overhang / roof on the right side of the top rock).

warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber - (and if possible, behind a large tree).

Location

Under the cave on the right side of the corner.

Protection

Standard rack with emphasis on medium and large cams.

Not suitable for Top-Roping.

Yeah, it's dirty and thrilling and the roof crack flares outward so as you exit the cave, if your cams rotate they won't hold. Add to that the strange off-balance exit and you've got a type 2 fun classic. Nov 17, 2017
