Andrew Roberts on The Transmigration Corner!

  • Description 

    The Transmigration Dihedral is probably the second largest and most obvious feature at Old Castle Crag. As you climb you will transcend up the large left facing open book that is visibly seen from the road. This was the very first climb I ever did at this cliff. Originally I always felt it was 5.10 but once you have figured out the sequence and let go, it is only 5.9!!!

    Location 

    Lovated on far right margin of the Dihedral Wall. Start as for birdshit chimney or 5.8 varied face out of left. Once you have established yourself in the beautiful corner, climb splitter handcrack until it is possible to pull through two mini roofs.

    Protection 

    Gear to 3 inches, Gear anchor to 3 inches.

    Climbed the 2-pitch 5.7 to the left on 1/31/15. There are roughly 80-100 swallows nesting in transmigration crack (must be a small cave inside).
