Description Suggest change

  • ONLY CLIMB POROUS CONGLOMERATE IN DRY CONDITIONS TO AVOID BREAKAGE*POOR QUALITY LITHIFICATION*
Ascent Video youtu.be/8TgtPA9TKns
Underneath the overhang of Little Subway Boulder, obvious start "pinch rail"usually has remnants of chalk due to sheltered overhang, very low spread feet grabbing surface friction more than a feature. Move quickly through a set of crimps up to the prominent iron rail (ferra) and traverse right along it. Bump right to a series of blind side clings to move around to the vertical side of the boulder, the earthy side (terra), please keep the moss present there for the natural look and promotion of technique through the sequence, avoid contacting the moss to keep feet dry. Easy top out following iron rails that you navigate by finding a balance in your feet, poor hand holds.

Location Suggest change

Walk descend down the loop entrance, walk around or thru big subway (difficult with pads). On the other side descend down a steep muddy gully into the belly of little subway.
