savage winter


Excellent crimpy lower section (5 bolts), to a gear placement, to a juggy but steep headwall. Last 20' requires gear as well. Can move left to the final bolt of Visions of Impalement.

Similar to a lot of the routes here, this would climb much better if fully bolted. The last 20' section of "crack" that requires gear is grungy and fragile...take care with placements.


First route to the right of Visions of Impalement.


12 bolts, gear to 2". Shares anchors with Visions of Impalement.

Excellent route! Technical crux for me was between bolt 3 and 4. Above is all energy management. Five feet above the last bolt you can get a good no-hands rest and thread a sling for bomber pro. A stiffer sling (or maybe one with 6" of tape on it) is best to make the thread through. Without that no-hands rest and the thread through, I would have given the climb three stars and a PG13 rating. Above the thread-through, you can fiddle in some really junky gear then make a few more moves to the last bolt on Visions of Impalement.
