Blind Faith, 5.12c


This short route packs a punch. Getting off the ground can be humbling (if you do it the REAL way and not start up the hill and traverse in).
The climbing is very bouldery and sequential using some really cool holds along the way, such as a mono disguised as a jug. Not much endurance is required for the successful redpoint, just figure out the sequences and sprint!


This route is the furthest left route in the Gully. It is the short, steep white face at the top of the hill.


4 bolts, closed cold shut anchors.

One of many stellar routes in the gully. I'd give it four stars if it were longer. Isn't Stigmata right close to this? and what's Pete's route at the end of the gully? Those are both phenomenal lines as well.

I agree with the star rating. They gave it 4 stars in the guidebook, but I think it's just a tad too short to be "classic". The movement is stellar and there is quite a bit of climbing for 4 measly bolts.... if only it were twice as long.

Resist the greed of another quick RP and don't stem off the choss to the right of the route. It may feel a bit contrived, but it will take away from your true experience with this stellar (mini) route.

Also... for the full value redpoint, you need to start low and direct - NOT uphill on the left and traversing in.
