Taylor cruxing on "The Slow Spring"


More crimps and edges on a slightly less-than-vertical face. Crux is near the 3rd bolt making a couple long moves to reach and pull past a pocket. At the last bolt head right, then back left on a wild lip traverse to the anchors. New titanium glue-in bolts.


Third route in the corridor on the right wall.


8 bolts, anchors.

Nice! I always thought there'd be good routes there.

No, the routes to the left of Clicking Barnacles were existing routes, not new creations. There is still plenty of undeveloped rock there though.
