Danielle, setting up for the crux on Fall Line.


This climb is super fun! Steep climbing with incredibly good holds. Start by climbing straight up aiming for nothing less than jugs. After bolt 3, make a reachy move to some great holds below a pronounced overhang. Try to shake out here. Find a finger lock in the overhang, pull the overhang and clip the bolt. Make another reachy move to a shallow hold (for this climb) and move fast to more jugs (crux). From here, keep it together and trend up and right with increasingly good holds. The last jug may be hard to find.


This area is located to the far right side of the Fern Buttress area. Fall Line is the first line of bolts to the left of the waterfall.


7 bolts, shuts.

As of today there is a scary tree trunk hanging from the edge of the cliff down to the bolts for this route.
