  • South side crags access issue. MORE INFO >>>

  • Description 

    Five bolts of steep jughauling lead into an excellent splitter crack.

    Location 

    Toward the right end of Orange Wall; you cannot miss this route.

    Protection 

    Five bolts, plus lots of fingers-sized gear. Also, contrary to what the new guidebook says, there are NOT bolted anchors at the top of this route. You will want to either top it out, or traverse off to the right at an obvious ledge, and finish by going to the pair of bolted anchors around the corner.

    I bet not too many people get on this... its a bit chossy through the bolted tiered roofs, but I have to say that overall this route is a classic! Wild sport route with a juggy and fairly hard final move over a roof to a pumpy rest. In most places in the country it'd be over. Then the business begins. Full on steep fingerlocks and all gear to the top. Wild and extremely satisfying. Enjoy!
