In the groove !


A superb well protected sustained pitch on good rock.Climbed on sight pro placed on lead.The first of four FA's over the Memorial weekend.

P1)Climb up to a bolt at 20' then up to the top of a massive spiked block. Now follow the slim groove trending slightly left .A total of 8 pro bolts and two cam place placements to double anchors below the head wall.
Rap the route.
