Start with either a gaston with your (L) or crimp the obvious face hold with your (R)? Power up and into a small sharp crimp with you (L) and then chose your foot position carefully while gaining just the right leverage to make the long, powerful and committing move to a far away crimp located up and to the right. Quickly gain a nice left hand flake and work your way on top of a small ledge system caped by a left leaning crack and a bulge.

To finish climb up and left into a shallow scoop. Continue up and left via the easiest way onto the slab above.

Nice work Jason. Impressive send!!


Located on the left side of "The Wisdom Wall" just before you head hard up slop and into a bunch of bushes and trees. Referring to the photo beta would be best.


A few pads and a least one spotter.

This line has also been fully cleaned and is ready for action. But beware... it has one supper sharp move on it that kinda sinks up on you and before you know it your tips are bleeding!! It's a four try and then move on kinda project. It can definitely end ones day earlier than probably expected. But it's fun climbing and worth the effort.

That was a sick day man. You crushed the whole town. Now I have got to update "The Wisdom Walls" route info. Because you made sure that "The Razor" was a project no more. Just plain animal!!

I have sent "The Razor" twice now, and it's still a hard line, man. So good!! I still think it's V8, people!!

Super nice line. Would be four stars with friendlier holds. The top out just adds another star, tall, easy, but committing.

Sorry guys and gals, the second hold broke last week, but it is not any harder, still just as sharp though! Happy sending.

Did this with 2 pads and no spotter. Felt pretty spooky! Really great line though. If you're strong at crimps, you'll crush this line easily.
