Chris Stewart searching for holds. They just look ...


This route is the rightmost route in the corridor across the way from the Inner Sanctum. Not as steep as Brasserie, but the same type of holds (crimpy, steep) and same body English (not typical) are the key to this climb. Great climb, tough texture, still shedding.


2 bolt anchor at top. Drag is not a problem for a TR. Easiest way to TR is to lead Pandora's Pebble Pinching Party Palace around the left side around the arete (5.6).

Some interesting stems and tenuous deadpoints on this climb. While closely bolted, whipping is not recommended because the crystals are so sharp--I found this out the hard, bloody way.

This route was an excellent climb, I thought. Hard, interesting moves with varied holds that mix it up. A great burn with some Thank-God jugs at the very top.

Seemed like every other hold I put my foot on came off....

Brian, welcome to the Monastery, where popping holds are not terribly unusual.
