Kai on the crux move.


Start SITTING with a left hand crimp and a positive right hand pinch. Compress up the arete and the crack, leading to a slopey crux near the end. It has incredible rock.

This is 50 feet above the Big 45. See directions under that climb.


3 pads and a spotter. The landing is weird

Just moved to Whitingham, up the road from Readsboro, curious if any of the Readsboro climbing shown in the video is on public land/a location you'd want to share.
