Description 

Due to a hold breaking, what was once considered a (5.11d) alternate start is now been recognized by many as a solid (5.12).

Start left of the The Gimp under the first bolt. Technical face climbing on crimps and jibs lead to easier terrain after the second bolt... hope I haven't said too much.

Enjoy what many consider a classic line!


Location 

Right of Fashion

Left of The Gimp


Protection 

Six bolts (some recently replaced) to a NEW ANCHOR!!

Hey a friend of mine and myself went out to do Fashion yesterday. We tried the direct start and both did that section clean first try. I honestly didn't think it made the climb any harder than it's original grade. Thoughts?
