mike thompsom climbing Evolution... i like this on...


Pull on from small crimps at about 6' high, both of which are from a small flake. There is a small rail for both of your feet. Make a big fun move to the right onto another small crimp at the top of a flake. Work your way up that flake and reset your feet on the face below you. Throw really big again to the right, aiming for a sloper. Matel onto the less steep terrain (crux) and climb the easy slab topout.

There is a sit start which I was told is V11, it's all yours.


Just past ride the lightning and the terrorist, on the next boulder close to the trail. You will be facing the same direction as the aforementioned climbs about 50 feet away.


a few pads and spotters, I wouldn't want to do this one alone.

well i did this today but after ready reading the description i need to go back and do it again lol. i went up the the good flake and stuck my foot out left around where the start hold is and just mantled strait up from there :) sort of a direct version to evolution.... what i did felt more like V4 than V6 but it was still a blast :)

I have to agree with Mike and Lee's sentiments. I climbed this line two ways today, both as the description states and then again exiting straight up from the last good holds and not using the sloper out right. I found it to be more natural and more enjoyable to do it the second way. Seemed somewhat contrived and unnecessary to go to the sloper. Doing it this way might be more like v5.

Somewhat fun, though there are so many better climbs in the area at the grade.
