  • Description 

    A sweet handjam, a drop-knee, and a partial kneebar on a superb line that climbs a prow high above the starting gully.

    A tricky start leads to briefly easier climbing, followed by a slightly overhanging section right where you think you'd get a rest. A thin bit leads to the base of the upper prow, followed by some difficult moves to get established on the prow. Sidepulls and small crimps lead up the steep rock, until the angle eases just before the anchors.


    The right-most (uphill) of the two bolted lines on the north-facing side of Old School Rock.


    10 bolts, Metolius rap anchors.

    I was told this line is .11c but it felt more like .11b to me. If you don't avail yourself of the obvious rest before the crux, it probably feels more like .11c.

    This is another gem in this canyon that is superb. Perin and I went up there not knowing much about this climb. Thank goodness for the rest but since I have never climbed an .11c (even in the gym), I have to agree with Perin. You will use a variety of techniques to get up this quality line.
