Description 

A tough route with a very gratifying start. The opening sequence is a tendon popping gripfest! Complete this clean and reach SuperStar status.

Carapace starts out hard on thin crimps and vanishing feet. Pull through on shallow edges to gain a stance on small edges; stay strong and persevere, a rest is on the way. Climb up, leaning left on micro-crimps passing another crux and catch your breath. Pick and choose your final moves to the chains carefully-things aren't always as they appear.


Location 

Carapace is the third route in from the left on the main wall. It is the first climb to the right of Voodoo Economics.


Protection 

Four draws + anchors.
