Drilled Pockets Left


A lot like climbing in the gym as these holds are comfy and not natural. Long gymnastic movement up the very nice angle of the left side of the A frame. Go right = V5, Go left = V4.


Walk into the A Frame and marvel at the many holes in the rock on the left side of the overhang.

surprisingly fun for something so chipped.

There are maybe half a dozen variations to be done on the drilled pocket wall, all roughly in the V4-5 range with plenty of harder eliminates possible. A good spot for a solo outing, as the landing is flat, sandy and well-groomed, and because of the steep angle, the problems don't end far from the ground. Yeah, most of the holds are manufactured, but there are some really fun lines to be had here.

decent line going left on edges if you skip the 'pockets'. terrific line on the far right side that use natural edges. the movement is powerful and not nearly as tweaky as the drilled problems. the former seems v6-ish while the latter is a stout v7.
