Ethan on Route


Although the grade is debated a little, this is a great consensus 11. Delicate moves on good rock, not too pumpy as there is a good rest at the ledge and the crux is early. Requires a little thought and a bit of a sequence.

Bolts. Please use your own gear for top rope. Please bring an extra biner and if the ones up top look bad or don't easily clip or shut, please replace. It's good karma.

A very fun route, although I think calling it a 5.11c is a bit optomistic, hey it boosts my ego. Follow the small pockets past the first two bolts (crux), at which point the hold start to get a little bigger. Continue to a large ledge and climb the slab to the top clipping a bolt en route. This route shares anchors with Cyclops.

A great route on solid rock that onsights a little harder than 11c. It's powerful for the inefficent, and a perfectly pleasant balance-fest for those who can keep their weight over their feet. A delightful way to start working medium 11's at Red Wing, it's also fun to find yourself on this route again and again.

agreed: fun thin/techy route. moving out of the cave/hueco is also quite fun, juggy.

I would highly recommend staying the course over the bulge after the ledge and last bolt. It definitely adds a little something to the flavor.
