Slabby and with a distinct crux.
FA. Jim Titt 2004


The very large slab on a this route start to pull away from the cliff when i put my weight on it. It was really scary as the slab had a bolt in it and I was clipped into it!
It was the entire slab at the top which the penultimate bolt was in. The route follows the right sided layback on the flake of this slab.

I didn't notice any looseness.

It's the 6b+ to the left that's going to collapse. This route's not loose.

really enjoyed this one - agree with last post it's totally solid

I had a few guys top roping on this route 2 weeks ago. There was evidence of some of the loose soil/rock from the top having fallen recently. Not a problem until one of the guys pulled off a 12"x8"x8" block that he was going to use as a hold about a third of the way up. The rest of it seemed ok, but just be aware

This route seems as solid as they come now, there's nothing left to come off! Quality climb though!

The crux is actually a move lower than it looks from the ground. A bit of a swine. Is it me or is it all the rage to hang/sit on the bolts when struggling? I'm not an advocate of this as you wouldn't hang on your own protection would you?

I think the 6b+ next it has collapsed now but this climb is firm. Certainly needed to trust the stickiness of my boots at the crux. I stepped left and got better friction.

Ace route. Slabby around the middle. Just got to push past to nice holds and wide crack above.

the wide crack as said above is the key i missed it and struggled like hell but others found it and made me look an idiot. oh well. otherwise nice climb.
