Longest route at Willow with roughly about 70 hand moves and 17 bolts, give or take. Nothing too super cruxy just continuous movement with a couple rests, that will all leave you with a dry throat in the end. Begin on 'Dry Lightning' and climb it across the roof lip to where it meets 'Cain'. Continue traversing left just above 'Cain' on a couple pockets that will bring you into 'Couch Time'/'Genesis Effect'. Keep going left into the 5th bolt on 'Natural Selection'. Climb 'Natural' just over the roof to a decent rest then finish off the forearm burning on 'Midsummer Daydreams'.


Starts at the 'Rejection and Mercy' roof crack at the center of the amplitheater.


Bolts and some long draws will help with rope drag. Please do not toprope off of the fixed gear at the top, use your own draws for that. If the biners on the chains look worn or do not work properly, please replace them. It's good karma.

Such a sick link up that traverses almost the entire amphitheater. You will definitely have mastered endurance based Willow climbing if you succeed on this route.

hardest 13b at willow. unlike the others, there are no kneebars. business time also takes a small army to equip. probably the best candidate at willow for using two ropes. mega.
