BETA PHOTO: Ground Effect 5.10d


Start on the right side under the belly of the overhang on obvious jugs and climb up and right on obvious seam. Route move straight up through some cracks fin-like holds to just below small roof with horizontal. Some holds are loose so be careful.


To the right of 5.12 start crimps on obvious jugs. Best moderate route on cliff.


Trad / Toprope - some loose rock

This route has a name, Ground Effect. Not sure who first led it, but will do my best to find out. It's a stout lead at 5.10+, but the pro is there (I've led it and know several others who have). There is only one loose rock on the route, which someone has plastered with a large X. It is lodged, will bear weight, and isn't going anywhere anytime soon. A beautiful route.
