BETA PHOTO: JAG on The Streak


One of the last routes at the big wall between Hinterland and Alpine Line. Starts on left facing ramp and follows the dihedral up towards the first anchors. Follow the pocket and prow up and slightly right to the second set of anchors. Careful as holds continue to break between the prow and the anchors.


Located in the Big Wall area.


Six bolts to the first anchors, fixed draws from the first anchors to the second.

Birdsboro climbing website lists FA of Opposing Gravity 5.13 as Jerry Marquardt, 1995?

Justin - The Streak and Opposing Gravity share the first 4 bolts (up to the first anchor). The Streak continues straight up past the refrigerator block and up the thin face, whereas Opposing Gravity trends left after the first anchor and pulls the small roof and up the thin face. So Opposing Gravity and The Streak are two separate routes. I hope I cleared up any misunderstanding.

While a few years ago this was 13a, some of the holds around the 3rd/4th fixed draw have deteriorated into much better holds, allowing for a decent shake between the cruxs. I think its now around 12d
