Onsighting Prometheus Unbound.


Get tall through the start to reach high crimps and get into an undercling. Move up on pockets through the steep bit to get to where there are some horizontals. Rest in the horizontals before attacking the first pocket band with some thin moves on poor pockets. Good holds above allow a respite before the next band of pockets which are a bit bigger. Better holds above lead to the anchors.

Similar to but a little harder than Jesus Wept.


Just left of Jesus Wept. Starts by mantling onto a ledge and reaching over the roof above.


Bolts to a bolted anchor.

Could be even better than its more popular neighbor Jesus Wept. This route is soooo good! Get on it and smile!
