Pulling up above the crux and into the easier terr...

Thompson Canyon MORE INFO >>>


Steep! Climb two bolts to a fair rest, then tackle steep rock with several small roofs. Pull the crux where the holds thin to a no hands rest. Pass about 2 spaced bolts on 5.8 terrain to the anchors.


Down the hill from the cave, between Houka and a long 10b.


8 Bolts + 2 open shuts.

Try a heel-hook at the crux! Makes that insane crimp just a bit easier to deal with!

Some of the best rock we encountered at the Pogue's Cave area was on this climb. Fun, monkey (see gymnastic) movement to the crux bulge, then heel-hook and REACH.....I'll let you figure out the rest! Have fun!

Please delete your comments. Your unsolicited beta takes away the possibility of on-sighting from everyone that scrolls through this route page.

^^^^ Take away the beta? If you don't want any route beta, then don't troll around on a website where the mantra is "Beyond the Guidebook". If you're so pure, next time just show up to the crag, pick a line, and fire away Scotty.

I do want route information. I want to know where a route is and its grade. MP users typically do not spray beta in the route information so that everyone can have a chance to try and onsight.

If all you want is route location and grade, then pick up a copy of Rock Climbing NM by Dennis Jackson. This is a bare bones guidebook that won't mess up a pure OS. I personally don't read the description of a route, comments or look at pictures of a route before I attempt to OS something. But it sure is fun to read the route description & comments later.
