The flake-crack is a slick favourite that requires good footwork and technique on the polished holds to guarantee a tick.
I like tihs one, only cos I can do it and Mel can't
Change "becoming very polisheded" to is very polished. Would have been good it it's hayday.
Bag of... Too polished to even warrant getting the ropes out.
Yes it is VERY polished but for us that was half the fun. It puts a whole new dimension on it and makes for a good technical challenge. I usually hate polished routes but on this occa Crux just above the bolt tok some bottle.
The polish doesn't really affect the good climbing just make sure you place your feet carefully.
"Hey i can see my face in this" polished. Moving up to belay is nasty with hardly any purchase for feet, literaly have to yank yourself up by brute force alone. Avoid.
I agree with Dave, the polish made this route more interesting, still very climable.
The polish makes no difference. Solo it and see how much your feet stick when they have to! (it's a remarkable solo but remember you WILL break things, if not lots of things if you fall off).
crazy route. but polish is getting to much.
Any idea what the route to the right up the arete is? The arete climb was very nice with some good exposure stepping round onto the other face. Felt about a 4 for me, but I happily reached some jugs from the ledges and scampered up whilst the sub 6foot climbers in my group found this a bit more hairy and strenuous.
In answer to my own question: Hate the sin, love the sinner 5+.
No way is the arrete 5+! More like 3? Where did you find the route description Andy R?
