Stampe meets up with the French Connection, 5.11c


Small holds (and a secret society handshake of a crux section) make this assassination attempt quite memorable.


The right-most set of bolts on this big, blonde buttress with a whole mess of bolts on it.

Move left at the second bolt if you change your mind about the connection and decide to take on the Merchants of Death. Shares chain anchors with Merchants of Death.


8 bolts. Closed anchors.

A stick clip is a great tool to have for this climb. The bottom is on pretty friable rock and its a good confidence booster to be clipped in. The headwall is amazing with bullet proof rock and a devious crux section. There is a birds nest with some baby chick shortly before the crux. Please give them space.
