This is my Bro-in-law redpointing this sweet climb...


This is a very classic climb. Very steep and fun!! The .11c rating comes from the first 10 feet of the climb. Then after that, nothing is harder than a .11a.


Second route from the left as you enter the pipeline.

This is way steep but with huge holds. Climb it like an ape. I believe the name of this climb is The Angry Inch. It is the second climb from left. The climb to the left of it is 11d.

I was there with a friend who knew the guy who bolted the route. As mentioned previously the name of this route is "The Angry Inch" and I believe it originally had a rating of 11c. Great climb with a terrific sequence of long reachy moves.

Glad I onsighted this while it was still an 11c- Very fun route. Worth doing.

Hey Kip long time no see!

  • This is the second route from the left in the Pipeline.
  • Throught the swath of chalk on the grading cobble it still seems as though local concensus is 11c as far as we were able to tell.
  • 60 feet is quite generous for the length of the route, this rig is no longer than about 40 feet.

Really fun steep climbing on big, positive but greasy cobbles. Probably easier the faster you move or the better you know the route. On this route probably half or more of the holds that you grab are individual cobbles which is rare. Not so many pockets or pebbly cobble holds as on other routes.
