The "Move" Pitch

Closures for Peregrine Falcon Protection MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Starts after the 20 first pitches of Salathé.

Crux is definitely the "Down Climb" (12c)
"The Move" pitch is really easier than 5.13a if your tall
"Chickenwing" the start is R just above the belay
"Golden desert" is about 5.12
"The A5 traverse" is about 5.12c/d
"Razorblades" pitches are scary but amazing !

Location 

Start with the Free Blast

Protection 

2-3 sets from .3" to 4" (Offsets good for the freeblast)
1 n°5 Camalot
1 (or 2) n°6 Camalot
1 or 2 sets of nuts

On november 2016, one bolt is missing on R27 (start of "the move" pitch) bad fall on belay is possible
