A War With Nature (v5)


Absolutely perfect rock and interesting movement make this climb worth doing if you're in the area.

Climb the black, swirly face starting with your left hand on a flake at 6 feet and your right hand in a slopey pocket at 5 feet. Make a tricky move to stick the slopey slot above and then top out slightly left and up on slopers and crimps.

There is potential for a hard sit start to this problem, but it probably would not climb as well.


This problem is located on a boulder about 15 yards downhill and left of Minute Man.


A couple of pads should suffice. Watch the rock in the landing zone.

Both of the 'older' guidebooks describe this problem. I thought it would be a worthwhile addition to the site, since it's worth checking out if you're there to climb 'Minute Man'.
