Lina leading up Cloud Nine (pitch 1) at Pearly Gat...

Description 

A great 2 pitch line that can be done in one if you have a 60m.

P1- Climb an excellent hand and fist crack to a two bolt belay. 5.8

P2. Climb a bolt protected corner that makes up the crux of the route. Some fun stemming. Easier gear protected climbing leads to the belay.


Location 

In the center of the main crag. Left of leap of faith, Obvious hand crack...


Protection 

Gear to 3.5 camalot for the first pitch.

The first pitch is Classic!

Leavenworth guidebook calls it a 5.8, however, opening sequence is pretty stout. The rest of the climb is a series of perfect jams, and a crack that takes pieces well. Crux of the first pitch happens after 4 or so pieces. Great stuff!
