Me on House of Pain 5.12a/b on my send 2/25/15

Open, with restrictions: Park on the street MORE INFO >>>


This route has fun technical climbing to a hard sequence below the last bolt. On the way to top you will find many good rests to keep the pump at bay. Once you make the final clip and get established over the roof, crimp your way through the crux to the anchors.


Starts below a small roof just left of Adrenaline and about 15' left of Tangerine Dream.


13 bolts to ring anchors.

Fun route, good semi technical climbing with some rests for the first 80% of the climb. All solid 11 climbing until the final bolt, coming out of the bulge at the top with some small crimps and bad feet.

The crux of this route is clipping the last bolt...
