Two starts, both of which lead to a tenuous crux. Fairly sustained climbing that involves some good movement on good rock.


Just right of Divine Tiger about 75 feet up the terrace.

Nice route but two starts... seems unnecessary.

Hey John, why do you say two starts seem unnecessary? Did you do them both? Why the word unnecessary? Had I given it a name and credited someone for doing it, that would have been unnecessary. Or I could have soloed it and not posted it. But instead I added a few bolts giving folks an option. Are you just miffed because you don't feel like you can put it on your tick list until you have done both? HaHa!

Oh, the reason I did both is that I liked them both. I couldn't pick just one as I thought I would do one start one time and a different start next time.

Looks like your hand is feeling better from your other post.

Perhaps unnecessary was the wrong word to use -- it is merely unusual. I am a creature of habit and convention and thus was surprised to see two starts.

I only climbed the right variation before ticking it and calling it a day. I should have climbed the left variation as well before saying anything.
