BETA PHOTO: Genuflect


The only real route on Choss Wall, and inaccurately displayed in the guidebook, this route follows a usually damp, obvious seam just across the cul-de-sac from T.P. and Hanky on the Enterprise Wall. There is a small ledge about half-way up, making this a good route on which to practice "multipitch".


Just across the cul-de-sac from Enterprise Wall, at an often damp and always mossy vertical crack. Climb crack and face above to top. Easy walk-off.


Unknown. Very tricky gear anchor at top.

One of my favorite routes at PK. The gear is totally fine. The anchor up top can be the oak tree 40 ft back or the pair of boulders (one on each side, about 15-20 ft back). Either setup needs 50 ft or more of rope/webbing. If you're there, sample the face about 6-10 ft left of Genuflect for some nice 5.7ish moves. I call this "Genu-Left".

The route called "Genuflect" in the guidebook (climbers right of the "Genuflect" listed on this website) is also a fine climb. Of course, which is the original "Genuflect", I couldn't say. Still, the guidebook version is about a 5.6 with good protection. There are a few small trees on the way up, but they don't get in the way too much.

One of the boulders on top moves if you start really testing it. Be careful when slinging boulders on top. I used a 60 foot static rope and extended with two double length slings around trees.
