Chris at the crux on Supercalibelgolistic (5.9), H...

Description 

Quite a long climb for this area, and worthwhile doing, especially late afternoon.

Gracefully climb the chimney in the corner, clipping the first bolt on the way and up to a big ledge, then traverse right on another smaller ledge and clip the second bolt. Pull up over the first bulge (crux 1) using a long reach on a good flake. The next bulge is the hardest move on the climb (crux 2), using a high step and another long reach. After this cruise good flakes to a ledge, clip the next high bolt from here and pull up over the final strenuous bulge (crux 3) to more good flakes and the anchor. It helps to be tall on this one.

Location 

An alcove on the left of Stone Wall, there's a chimney crack in the corner.

Protection 

10 bolts to 2 bolt ring anchor.

Super fun route and a great warm-up for the more difficult lines on the wall.

Had a blasty over all the bulges, this climb is so much fun. The style is so different from anything else and you finish with the best view of the valley.
