Stage Fright


Another line born from the Save Sandstone Festival. A burly undercling crux starts the route, followed by a crimper traverse and gaston sequences. Although relatively short, this techy climb packs a punch on some pretty cool sequences. If only it could continue for longer.


Located in between Adoption / Arbor Day and the arete.

Not sure if this is an far as I know no one had done it yet. Also unsure of the grade - felt pretty hard at first, but with some tricky beta it eases up. Others should hop on it and offer their thoughts!

Way to go beastoid.
We all gasped and groaned at the festival when the starting hold broke. Some cried. I growled but also guffawed.
But Kurt just stared. The Kurt stare. His gaze created it's own breeze. His abs tightened and almost tore from his body. He knew it would still go.
Apparently, it does.
This is the most "Sport Climb" of these new climbs. Fun fun fun.

Excellent name for a route. There's a scary route in NH called Stage Fright that has been repeated once. I figured I'd share: and a picture:
