This is twenty feet left of Cryongenics on the Grotto Wall. It's the dark spot on the left side of the pic. Climb an easy twenty feet up to a crack, after about sixty feet there is a bolt. The route turns to the right, and you see a piton. Continue up the crack, clip the Cryogenics chains or walk off the backside. If you don't clip Crygenics, building an anchor can be tricky.


A set of nuts and a few [tricams].

Yes, J Brown...obviously they're confused about a 5.12a and a 5.8. It's a big rock, maybe you should go check it out again.

There isn't a route that could possibly be there that is 5.8, in that area of Cryo.? There just isn't any room. Clip the first anchor of Cryo or Second? I would like to know where this actually is? 20 feet left is "Under Pressure" or the wet, left-trending arch.
