Shirley leading Developing Arms (Dec. 2011) belaye...

Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>


Burly. Book says 5.9, so I put that as the grade... but it's a stiffy. We just TRd it after leading Orange Sunshine, but it would be a fine lead if you brought some #3 and #4 camalots for the wide bit. Enough face features keep the wide crack in check.

This one will get your blood going for the grade.


Crack just left of Orange Sunshine.


Small to #4 camalots.
