Richard Boyle starting up Death Grip


A fun powerful route on very unique stone. A bouldery pre-clipped start leads to slopers and pinches. Don't botch the start as even with the first bolt pre-clipped if you fall off too early it is still possible to end up in the stream. Start out on good holds to pull the overhang and get up to the first bolt. OK crimps and a good pocket lead to a pinch and a tricky move getting to the clipping holds for the second bolt. Grab a quick shake here and move up on steeper ground through good pinches and make a hard move to a good undercling and the third bolt. Rest here if possible and pull the final tricky moves pulling over the final bulge to a nice rest before the final moves to the anchors.


Next route to the right of Happy Entrails.


3 bolts to anchors with fixed biners. Stickclip recommended, there is currently a stick at the base as well.
