In Stitches 5.11a. Begins in the wide chimney up ...


scramble up onto some blocks in the chimney and reach over to clip the first bolt. You can either mount the slick featureless slab or wrestle the cool knife blade feature to your left. Either way you'll end up on it to clip the third and reach up for the blockyness under the roof. Pull around the roof and follow the crack up the lie-back dihedral. Reach out left onto the face (follow the bolts!) and face climb good edges. A few more crack climbing moves and blocky edges take you to the anchor. A great climb with a wide variety of types of climbing. Steep and pumpy to boot.


Approximately 100 right of the tunnel. Find the first bolts on a slab just right of an East facing chimney-like feature that narrows quickly as it goes up.


9 bolts and sport anchors

The beginning diheral is easily the crux. Getting the 3rd bolt clipped and keep going was tough! After that it's sustained 10b/c climbing. Great climb!
