Sinister Exaggerator

Partially Closed.


Radical sidepulling, pinching and crimping up an overhanging wall. Begin atop a short detached pillar and make technical, demanding moves past several bolts to the ledge at the top. Sustained! Might feel a bit reachy in spots. This route receives an 11d/12a rating in the Falcon guide, so take that for what it's worth.


Near the middle of the wall to the right of the massive left-trending flake, start atop a large detached pillar and go straight up. Rap the route, or top belay the second and walk off.


7 bolts to bolted anchor.

12a is a lot more accurate for this route. The bottom requires one dynamic move to a side pull (accurately a 5.11+ move) which leads to more sidepulls before disappearing into extremely thin pinches and crimps. Feet are even trickier. From the bottom the route looks like an 11c/d, but once on the rock, perspective changes very quickly.
