BETA PHOTO: I Want Out 5.12+


A full value two pitch climb adjacent to the Conn Diagonal. First pitch is mixed, tricky, and exciting! Second is harder with well protected cruxes then more run-out on top.

1) 5.12 100', mixed, 5 bolts
Look for the first bolt just left of the Conn diagonal start. Follow easy slab up to steep black streak. Clip the next four bolts through a techy traversing crux and exit left into a large undercling flake. (There is a bolt line that continues up the black streak, this is still a project.) From the flake, begin placing small gear and work up the balancy overhanging arête. Crack will take you to the anchors with a nice stance.

2) 5.12+ 90', 8 bolts
Figure out the boulder problem to pull the bulge then hang on for sustained crimper climbing! Keep it together for the last half on run-out 5.9+ climbing. Chain anchors.

First pitch anchors could be reached via easier gear climbing from in between Vertigo and Outer Outlet, if your looking to only climb the second pitch.


This climbs the N corner of Outer Outlet. Beginning just left of the Conn Diagonal start. One 60m rope will get you down both raps.


Micro to Medium gear
