Crux, Bare Metal Teen, 5.12a. Worth paying to sta...

Description 

Stellar route in the middle of the 12 wall. Between Steelworker and Big Money Grip. Takes an impressive overhanging line through jugs to a marginal rest, maybe catch a bad kneebar before charging into the crux section then into a steep pumping jug/edge haul to the anchors.


Location 

Up the stairs past the climber's cabin, take a left before you hit the 11 wall and continue on the trail to the 12 wall. Front and center.


Protection 

8 bolts to chains. If you're lucky (like we were) there might be fixed draws.

Bare Metal Teen on the 12 wall-- awesome route. The guidebook says it's one of the cruelest jokes at the Red to call this 12a... My bad kneebar rest before entering into the crux sequence and then trying not to pump out... Super fun route whatever difficulty you call it. October '08. Photo (all 3 of these) by Jay.

This is considered one of the hardest 12a's in the Red. This climb might make Big Money Grip feel easy.
