Moving towards the crux on Primus Noctum (5.12a)

RRGCC Owned MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Climb through an easy start to the lay down rest. Pull over the roof and climb on big holds to a ok rest at a feature. From here fight the pump as you face the hardest moves on the runout to the anchor.

Location 

20 feet to the right of check your grip. It is on the face that is directly in front of the approach trail.

Protection 

8 bolts to shuts.

Much harder than Check Your Grip. Big, clean falls if you screw up the crux!

crazy runout crux to the anchors! stellar moves - found a no hands double knee bar in one of the slots mid way up the route, but not necessary given all the jugs on the way up
