Part of This area is on Private Property MORE INFO >>>


Metallic climbs the line of thin, slopey crimps just left of Zigzag Crack. Start with your hands on two crimps at about the seven foot mark. This is a perfect problem for a cold day because it's all about whatever friction you can get from the raspy starting holds. Place a foot on and toss to better holds. After establishing on the next set of crimps, the problem eases in difficulty. Top out just to the left of Zigzag in a little groove.


Pads and some extra skin for the raspy crimps.

Short, but sweet. A nice little test of finger strength (and conditions!). The corner/top out needs a little cleaning. I plan on doing so sometime soon.

A sit start looks like it would go and be real hard.
