Feel the Pinch.

  • Description 

    Start on the rail on the right, and work up left to the super-condition dependent pinch and the nice sharp right-hand gaston. Power up, in control and slightly to the left, to a left-facing jug rail.
    Totally amazing. Great movement. Tensiony and technical.
    I thought it was harder than Cruise Control, but it was pretty hot. One the best in the area.


    Around the corner to the right from The Shield, Bedroom Bully, Drill Sergeant. The eponymous pinch is in the middle of a vertical but gently scooped-out feature on the face. Just left of Fiend It, and Busted.


    2-3 pads. Kind of a funky landing, and it traverses, so it helps to have a couple pads and spotter.

    Some Leavenworth V4s feel like V6. This one and the Fridge Right take the cakes for hardest of the grade in town.
