Description [Edit]

Start with a thin and tricky sequence up blank rock to the high first bolt. Engage in another difficult section before a bolt or two of cruiser terrain. A couple of long moves lead to a small roof and the meat of the climb.

Only 15 feet remain, but they're brutal. Move dynamically around the roof and simultaneously pull your groin/labrum/hamstring to get established in the left-facing dihedral. Curse the lack of feet as you smear and swear your way up to an obvious anchor-clipping hold (which may or may not be a cruel disappointment).

Better climbers than me have half-jokingly called this route harder than Proper Soul. In any case, it's a true New River '13b', and a fine opportunity for character-building.

Location [Edit]

Just left of The Crouch (13d), identifiable by a letterbox slot around eight feet.

Protection [Edit]

Bolts to bolt anchor.

The anchor clip on this route makes the anchor clips on Finders Keepers and The Pod seem like child's play. Seriously difficult! Feb 14, 2018
