Philip on the cave project. Originally bolted by I...


A wildly overhanging project. It begins at the back of the cave. Move up on slacktites to marginal pinches. Horizontal climbing for the next 30 feet awaits. Opposition and kneebars are the key to pulling this section. Pulling the lip seems to give most people problems.

A substantial amount of rock was removed from the lip of this route. The rock in question was beyond reinforcement. I have rerouted the line to the left exiting through the pod. I have completed all of the moves through this "new" section and now feel that the route is a bit easier(~13c). This route is still an open project. However, it needs a bit more work to preparing for a free attempt. There is a key hold just before the pod which absolutely needs to be glued. There still is not an anchor. I will do both of these things in the spring. If you are feeling motivated I can provide you the material to get the job done.
