Bold, technical, implausible climbing on perfect rock: a Roaches classic. Wings takes a central line up the slab, past some curious crucial pockets.The undercut start is the crux, with a hard rockover move to gain the slab. Easier but unprotected moves up and left gain a pocket and gear (BD #1). Rock up to gain a standing position in the pocket, from which you can look longingly at the top. A wild dyno gives you the extra inches required, and a big rush!...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
