The Torcher is a classic testpiece ring-locking, footwork, and core strength. It will shred your skin and possibly break your spirit, but you’ll be grinning ear to ear every time you try it.

Start in the back of the crack with your feet on a pedestal and your hands in some sinker jams. Climb the thinning crack to it's terminus and make hard technical moves to the arete. Somewhat tricky sloper slapping and compression takes you to the top of the boulder. Take note of the crimp hard to see on the left face. The top out is straight forward on good holds, but it not something you would want to pop off of.


As many pads as you can find. Or in the style of the FA, probably just throw down a towel to keep your shoes dry.
