Me hanging out after the crux, trying not to fall ...

Writing in chalk MORE INFO >>>


A very good route, follows a crack system trending right through a couple of scary moves with so so pro then back left at the second break, around the corner and up to a big ledge.


Flake and crack with several obvious rock intrusions in the middle of the wall just right of the corner


Cams, wires to protect the crux. Bolted anchor.

My first 5.10b/c trad. I was so pumped going into the crux, it wasn't even funny. So I placed a terrible tcu, climbed up and placed a terrible #1 camalot in the flared crack, then decided to just go for it and try not to fall. Luckily it worked out, but if it didn't, those cams probably wouldn't have held and a 30 footer was likely. Maybe I missed some bomber gear placements though...

PG-13 my ass. I had bomber gear the ENTIRE way up.

A very deserving climb. Seems well protected. There are at least three ways to do the crux traverse.
