Delusions (5.11b), Frustration Creek


Easy climbing on the left face of the dihedral moves right across a triangular block down low. There's a nice ledge for a good rest, use it as there aren't many more opportunities. The climbing turns thin and reachy as you move back left into a seam where you'll find side pulls, pinches, stemming and interesting moves. Keep your cool and finish strong as you pull over the final lip.


As you come up to the upper falls, look left for a prominent dihedral. The climb starts in the corner and shares the 1st bolt with Good Girls.


8 bolts, chain anchors. Only one draw is needed on this as it's mostly protected by chain-draws.

A Crag Classic, I put steel carabiners on all the Permadraws, no more death draws!

Much thanks Matt! The crux for me on this one came right after the underclings. Excellent climb.

Does anyone know what the cable draws that go to the left a couple clips before the anchor are? Is that just how you should do mohawk now?
