Passed the difficulties on Marathon Man, 5.11b.

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


A steep and somewhat tricky start along a faint arete gains a ledge past the 3rd bolt. Continue up the slab above, pull a small roof at the 6th bolt and then continue up easy slab to anchors below the left side of a large roof.


Located 15' right of The Enforcer (5.12c) and 10' left of Mantle Marathon.


7 bolts, chain anchors

I believe a crucial hold between the first and second bold has broken off. I returned to this route for the first time in over a year last weekend and was unable to cleanly climb it after having no trouble the last time. It is fairly obvious where the broken hold is based on the lighter colored rock.

Hard to say without getting on it again. On the FA there were two ways to do the crux, one used smallish holds to the left of the arete (which were a little crunchy) and the other avoided them but both went at the same 11b grade - the latter had no obvious loose holds.

The real crux is moving from the first to the second both. I TR'ed it and made it with some difficulty, which would indicate that it is true to the grade with the holds as the are.
