1 Knuckle Dragger 5.6
2 [[10614...

Description 

A pleasant outing on fairly good-quality quartzite. Starts from a copse of scrub oak, climbs over a small overhang past the first bolt, and then continues more-or-less straight up on lower-angled terrain with the occasional vertical section. Holds abound, and there is some fun, juggy, side-pulling to be had.

Equipped by Christian Knight.


Location 

The second-from-the-left bolted route on the lower tier of Layer Cake.


Protection 

7 bolts, hangers-and-rings anchor (shared with Knuckle Dragger, to the left).

This climb is lots of fun, best described as a fun "jaunt" up the rock. Just know that the anchor bolts at the top are across a long ledge and the belay position vis a vis the climb is not ideal. Better to rap down than lower, I think. It'll save your rope.

Another fun one. Pretty much the same thing as Knuckle Dragger (and that's not a bad thing), just maybe a tiny bit harder. There are some really perfect jugs on this.

Just did this one again. A ton of fun. Barely harder than knuckle dragger with huge jugs and lots of great holds. That giant deep flake around the middle is one of my favorite holds.
