Brent working the sloper. (crux)

Portions of the approach and cliffs of this area are on private land. MORE INFO >>>


Scramble up to and climb the tufa to a block, then pass a sloper, large crimps and end on the lyback.
Just like the route to the left and the six routes to the right, this routes ends half way up the wall just before a large ledge (balcony).


Just to the right of LLN, just left of Grip it and Rip it.

Solid 5.11 but more climbing than you might expect looking at it.

One REALLY difficult move around a bunch of very cool climbing. Felt to me like another one of the "dreaded .11s" . If it's hot and sunny the move off the sloppy crimp feels 5.12ish - the rest of the route is awesome cool stuff.
