Thad Friday, (still) on The Adulteress.

  • Description 

    This route was originally put up in the style of the Eighties by two very strong and bold hardmen (Rob Woolf & Jeff Frizell). These gentlemen had more balls than bolts! Thanks to the permission of Rob Woolf, the route now sports chains and a few more bolts. The new bolts should be obvious - climb the route and imagine sending with the original pro. The pucker factor would have pegged the meter! There was even a pin pounded into a dubious block for good measure.... The technical crux happens before the roof and requires some pretty strong tendons. The roof has some relatively cruiser pulling from blocks to killer huecos, with a final 11+ move to the chains.

    Protection 

    15 bolts plus chains.

    Hard for 12b, but not ridiculously so - sort of like 12b in Rifle.Would be given 12c in many areas.

    Really fun and really burly!I recommend going here in cool weather - it faces south.

    This route is as good as Undertow or The Shaft. I installed new carabiners, painted the chains on the two chain draws, installed a mussy hook, and fixed carabiner on the anchor, so now you can just clip and lower. Now you only need 13 draws. I found it really helped to put 25cm long draws on bolts four and nine if you want the perfect rope line with no drag. This route is a real gem!
