SENIOR MOMENT 5.4 * (PG) 105’ F (9b)
From the single bolt belay anchor on the lower ledge traverse left about 10’ and climb the left face of the small dihedral (crux) to follow the indistinct arete up the middle of the face to step left under and around the broken upper overhanging band and on to the pair of chains about 15' below the top.

This would be a 3 star route if not for the fractured bottom and top sections, and like some of the other easier routes at Burge may seem hard for the grade – more like an old school 5.4, and so more like a 5.6 by modern sport route standards – with many moves a body length above the last bolt.

Possible to lower with a 60 m rope.


AT the far left end of the Upper SE Face


fixed - 9 bolts, 2 chains below the top.

Possible to lower with a 60m rope
