Near the top.


A tough route with a very gratifying start. The opening sequence is a tendon popping gripfest! Complete this clean and reach SuperStar status.

Carapace starts out hard on thin crimps and vanishing feet. Pull through on shallow edges to gain a stance on small edges; stay strong and persevere, a rest is on the way. Climb up, leaning left on micro-crimps passing another crux and catch your breath. Pick and choose your final moves to the chains carefully-things aren't always as they appear.


Carapace is the third route in from the left on the main wall. It is the first climb to the right of Voodoo Economics.
