Climber on Coronor


Starts with some lesser quality stone which improves as you move up the dihedral. Stemming and face moves protected by bolts. The crux is where the corner pinches off below a steep headwall. This route features very good movement, especially on the upper section. Despite the somewhat grim sounding route name the protection is good, and a call to the Coroner should in most cases not be necessary if taking on the lead of this route.

I actually thought the climbing on this was better than on the arete next to it! However, the exposure was not quite as exciting.

Rock quality is awful until you're above the second bolt... Lower part of this lead felt sketchy AF.

Higher up, the route is great. Fun stemming moves below lead to a mix of crimps and pulls higher up.

Coronor and ETI have the same 10b crux move which can be side stepped with a move right, and a move back left making the routes about 5.9 - lead them all!
