Grumpy 5.11c/d 7a 24 VIII 25 E4 6a  NM : Enchanted Tower : The Giants Molars
Start up some chossy slabby rock to the first bolt. Clip and get established onto the steep wall above. Closely spaced bolts lead to a powerful move off a bad hold and some powerful lockoff's. Pull onto a vertical section and rest for a few more tricky moves guarding the chains. More pumpy and difficult than it seems it should be. New route and lots of loose rock potential, should get better if it ever cleans up, but probably won't get much traffic.vainokodas.com/climbing/nmrout......[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
