Description

Freedom Fighter (p1) is the clean looking layback crack directly above Shirley. NAD (p2) is off to the left and Shirley (p2) is the dirty / blocky option a few feet to the right. This pitch is rated .10d in the guidebooks but feels significantly easier. Most likely a typo so I put it in as .10b.

Pitch 1 finishes on a ledge below Death to Zeke (.11a). P2 (5.9 ow) is the dirty crack on the right. I haven't climbed P2 but will likely clean it up soon™ and update here if I do.

Location

The clean looking layback crack directly above Shirley. You could definitely link this with Shirley for a sweet pitch.

Protection

Gear to 2" or w/e you used to get here for P1. P2 will need larger gear and a selection of brushes.

Bolted anchor on top of P1. Top of P2 is unknown to me but you should be able to get up the Narrow Arrow (anchors w/ rings) or something.

Did this the other day not really sure what the route/grade was. Fun route, needs more traffic to stay clean. If you keep jamming the whole way I think it's 10+, easier if you layback second bulge. Singles of .4-2 are more than enough. Oct 12, 2018
