Leah at the end of the crux of Vertigo

Open, with restrictions: Park on the street MORE INFO >>>


An excellent route with several hard sequences. The first cruxy section starts off the first ledge and leads to a long move to a good hold. Enjoy the no hands rest before starting the steep and sustained crux about half way up. The top half of the climb is easier, but sustained.


Located immediately left of Technicolor Tango, and just left of Bitter Has Been.

A great route for sure once you figure out the moves. A kneebar can be helpful at the beginning of the crux. I should have posted this one long ago.

I heard that there is decking potential low down on this route. Does anyone know any details on this? Are the moves hard at that spot?
