Zach and Evan working hard (or hardly working?).

  • Description 

    In my opinion, this is the best pitch in the area. It is super clean and has engaging movement. Zach and I bolted it with the help of our close friend Evan H. I recently got the redpoint, and it was the culmination of all of our work in the area.

    From the top of Heavy Duty (named after our friend in BC Canada who loves to clean moss and choss), climb directly up the headwall. Pull a bouldery move to a sharp pocket. From the pocket (ouch!, not comfortized), continue through the roof and up more 5.11 climbing before the anchors. This pitch is wonderfully exposed and is kind of fierce in short spurts. Quality!

    Location 

    This is technically the second pitch of Heavy Duty, but it deserves its own name and description.
