Joshua Moreland on Banana Dance.


Big holds and even bigger moves describe this athletic route. Banana Dance climbs an ever steepening overhang through jugs and deep edges. Lunge, throw, pull, and pump your way up this one.

Wear your tighty whities or tape accordingly.


Banana Dance is located directly in the middle of the wall on the right side of the large cave.


Seven draws + anchors

A truly sick climb! I thought the beginning was the hardest part with the crux somewhere around the third clip. Big throws from jug to jug. Lots of heelhooks makes for good rests, plus with a bomber hold everytime you need one you should send this easily.

Absolutely an amazing route! I love the sequencing! I felt it was a little soft for a 5.11d. Nothing seemed too hard.

Amazing route! Hard moves in the beginning section to the third bolt and clipping those tiny anchor chains was an enormous pain.
