Corner Pockets. Worth a climb.


This route is located a little past Hungry for Heaven on the right. It's a short, perfect looking left facing corner with a small roof near the top. Rap off a tree.

You walk past this a lot of times,wondering if it's even worth roping up for.

Once you battle your way up the 25' or so of real climbing, you know it was.

This climb is so worth doing. It may be only 25 feet, but it's all action.

This description fails to mention the weird(to me) start...

Quite a bit less weird than the majority of T-Wall starts, in my opinion!

Upgrade...this route now sports rap rings on the ledge. Like others have, good route, lots of action. Plus you can drop you pack and do 4-5 routes (5.7, 5.9, and 3 5.10's) within a few steps of another with nobody around.

Fun route. I think having your fingertips numb makes for some interesting crux moves.

Word to the wise: quite a bit harder than Suck Creek's "The Rose" of similar style and grade. I was humbled but this is a fun little route.
