Fear of Gear
|2,690 page views|
This climb is located on the far left of side of stone garden, it's on a wall that can be reached from a scramble up some loose dirt just left of the main crag. Fear of Gear goes up the obivous crack in the middle of the wall. the route protects well and has some very fun moves and some good jamming
Mid sized cams, a #4 Camalot can be used.

This was my first all trad route, it was awesome! The beginning is a little bouldery and getting established is the hardest part, but after you get past the first 15 feet it is totally rockin. When I topped out I howled like a banchee and got a response from something...perhaps Paul Moore

This is an easy route with big holds the whole way. Like a lot of quartizie routes very little crack climbing technique is required. I didn't jam once. The middle section takes big gear. I placed a #4 C4 camalot, a #9 WC hex, and a #3 C4 camalot. The crux is probably getting off the ground and into the crack.

Just started trad. Not my 1st trad lead but lik my 3rd it was scary fun and a great climb. I used 2 mid sized cams 1 big cam and 2u hexes.
If you are at the wall might as well climb it great view
