interesting pinch

Description 

This is the area closest to the Granite Rd parking spot mainly covering the cliff-band that parallels Granite Rd and crosses the power lines. The climbs are on both sides of the power lines.


Getting There 

From the Granite Rd parking go strait to the power lines, right before the power lines turn right onto the green trail. After crossing two man made bridges 2 minutes from the car look for a swamp crossing made with stones. From here you either stay on the green trail to the warmup wall/Swampy Pants or cross the stepping stones to get to Fern Gully.

The warmup wall is about 50 yards behind Swampy Pants.

You Might Not Make it to the Gables V4 6B CT : CT Bouldering : ... : Geriatric Ward
The line follows some decent, grippy holds and high feet, to an obvious horizontal crack. This is where the crux is, from the crack, you need to paste feet high on the wall and commit to two small crimps, until you make it to the right facing flake, from there it's easy street, with all positive holds, over the round lip. Suggest you either TR or practice the moves on TR before making an attempt.
