  • Description 

    The first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club. The second rule of Fight Club is: climb this route! About 60' right of The Warm Up is a large C-shaped pod about 25' off the ground. Jam a short crack followed by a couple of difficult face moves to reach the base of the pod. Clip the lone bolt, pull up into the pod (can be a tight squeeze!), and then fight your way out its top (crux).

    The first free ascent was done prior to the replacement of an old, hangerless ¼” buttonhead to the left of the pod. After getting up into the pod and discovering that he had no gear, Chris hollered to Steven to toss up the #5 Wild Country Friend. Steven made the throw on the first try (a distance of about thirty feet!) and Chris shoved the big cam up into a flaky crack at the top of the pod before finishing the route.

    Protection 

    1 bolt plus single rack up to 2". 2-bolt anchor with rap rings. Small wires such as DMM peenuts can be useful in the incipient crack immediately above the pod.
