Marci high on Purple Nehi


Climb on steep orange stone on sustained crimps to anchors. Great movement on beautiful stone. Crux is about midway up the route. Watch for bats in the cracks and underclings down low!!


To the left of Orange Crush just before the fence

Felt easier than Plumb Bob (left around the corner). That route seemed both more sparsely bolted and more powerful and awkward. This one was pure technical crimpy goodness.

Just before the anchors there is a very large flake that appears to be dangerously close to coming off. You can avoid putting any weight on it by doing a few more difficult moves. Make sure belayer is wearing a helmet.
