Redtail 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- 23 E4 5c PG13  Utah : West Desert : ... : The Tombstone
AKA THE OPTIMIZER or Tombstone crackA sick right facing corner that lures you in with an easy start then turns up the dial into tight hands and rattling fingers. Occasional hand jams help keep you upward, but then flare to an OW finish. Cruxes abound. 1st crux is below the bail nut. Second is above it where the crack goes to finger stacks (least secure). Third is diving into the offwidth. Two bolts for an anchor with some West Desert trash on them. Superb quality throughout!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
