Iron Helix V4-5 6B+  CT : CT Bouldering : ... : Butt Cheeks Wall
This great climb offers excellent movement on great but somewhat sharp holds. Sit start on the flake just left of the large crack. Crank up through good holds (a little sharp) in the crack and on the left face to the small crimper. From here fire high out left on the bulge to the seam. From there work your way up the buldge on seams to a good jug back behind the bulge. The right sequence unlocks some great movement....[more]   Browse More Classics in CT
