Climb the tall steep scary face just left of "Wisdom" and just right of "The face/crack project." I have tried this one a little with no luck!!! Not even a little!!! It has seen some attempts but as far as I know, no success to date.

There is still a good deal of lose stone left to pull off this line but the solid crimp systems that will one day lead one to the finish is quite visible and looks as if it will go. I feel this one has been a long time in it's development because of the difficulty of cleaning this steep high ball combined with the proposed difficulty of a possible V12+!!!! If it can be cleaned by rope the odds of this line getting done will be much improved.

When completed this will be the high ball jewel of Three Sisters Park. Like always if anyone has sent this line to date please let me know so I can update the information. Thanks and good luck!!


Located on "The Wisdom Wall." Climb the steep face just left of "Wisdom" and to the right of the "Crack/Face project." The photo beta I am posting should help those willing to try it a good sense of the line. When you stand beneath this project.... it will be clear what you must do!!!


As many pads and spotters as you can get!!!

Just cleaned this line real good this morning and the moves appear as sick or sicker than proposed!! It's full pull all the way to the end!!! So hard but so pretty. I would not recommend this line unless you have at least two spotters and around five or more pads. A fall from the last move, which is at about 30ft and crazy hard, would definitely cause injury. Precautions are a must for this line. And yes... this thing will probably really be V12 or V13!!!! Any takers!?!? Good luck and be safe.

I completed this line yesterday afternoon, starting from the huge undercling jug at head-height and climbing straight up through the crimps. If this has not been done yet, I would propose the name 'Rock Cheetah'.
