BETA PHOTO: The route.


This is a great, bouldery route that houses 4 roofs. Face climb and layback a left-facing corner up to a good undercling crack that takes hand-sized gear. Stem up and clip a bolt before making some interesting body tension moves to gain another undercling (crux). Layback the undercling and move right to gain a sloping arete and a decent rest. Pull up into the fat fingers roof (#0.5 Camalot), and square up for the next fingers roof (#0.4 Camalot). Above the fingers roof you are rewarded with some big jugs and a mellow headwall to the chains.


See the beta photo on the main page.


In order: gold Camalot, quickdraw, 0.5 cam, 0.4 cam, and optional hand-sized piece above. Slings.

I'm not sure about the grade on this one, 11+/12- is a ballpark. Rough, techy crux sequence. A stick-clip is handy for the start.

I broke a hold on this above the bolt, making a difficult sequence much harder. I'm considering dynamiting this part of the wall just to be done with this thing....
