Sticky situation MORE INFO >>>


A superb route for its grade. Lots of 5.7/5.8 friction on both pitches. Multiple cruxes on the first pitch and near the beginning of the second pitch. 60m rope required and if you rappel the route, two 60m ropes are needed.


This route is on the initial wall you encounter driving up to the Moonstone. It is to the right and uphill of Floating World, before you come to the base of the long left facing corner system that defines the right edge of this wall. Starting on some blocks, proceed past many bolts to a belay just right of the Floating World belay. The second pitch goes up the trough straight above.


Bolts, 3/8" Fixx with Fixx rap rings at belays. Take about 14 clips.
