This route will surely suck you in with its difficult beginning that will be nearly impossible to escape. Break free from the gravity to better holds about halfway up. Enjoy some killer big holds and good rests before committing to another crux on the black rock above.

KILLER CLIMBING ON BOMBER ROCK! This route does not suffer from the wetness factor that adds a letter grade on routes like Sith.


Between Power Of The Darkside and Concracktion


10 quickdraws. Open anchors.

The crux down below is fun! Very "horizontal" dynamic, on a set of smaller crimps with precise foot placements. Needed a few attempts to make it work.

The 2nd crux above was not nearly as hard I thought, I blew it because of the pump but once rested the moves are easier than the one below.

A must do at this wall! What an 11 & 12 paradise
