Matching the sledgehammer pinch

  • East Mountain is accessed by Guided Tour Only
  • Some areas require a guide.

  • Description 

    Very unique and entertaining movement on an overhanging arete. If you enjoy pinches, heel hooks, compression, and flexing biceps, this climb hits the nail on the head.

    Start sitting, hugging the arete with a good right hand pinch and a pretty poor left hand pinch on the face. Make a lefthand move up to a slopey hueco and work into the opposing sidepull crimps. Clever technique should lead you to the marquee move maneuvering through the large, made to order, sledgehammer pinch. From here, span out left to a deep jug, and exit onto the slab.
