Jessi on Porphyria, 11a, at the Infirmary 10/29/20...


Start with a two hold compression move to get your feet on. After the first bolt find your way through a maze of bad pockets to better holds above. Soon you will come to two horrible crimpers power through these and then an undercling moves to bigger holds leading to the anchors.


This route is on the ledge to the far left side of this crag. It is the second bolted line from the left on the ledge.


7 Bolts to bolted anchors.

Excellent warm-up if you're a high 12's redpointer. Hang it to warm up otherwise, super high-quality and fun line.

Not 5 bolts plus anchors like this page says, I think I used 7 plus the anchors. Good fun line.
