Go with the Flow
|2,130 page views|
On the right side of the columns, you will find Go With the Flow. Count 3 cracks right of the rightmost bolts in the Grotto, known as Moss Critique (5.11a), which actually uses the first crack.
Climb up a reasonably wide crack with broken sections every 15 feet that make excellent rests. Crux is about 35 feet up.
A great warmup if you're on a top rope.
2 bolts lie up top. Protection up to 4", but emphasize pieces between 1" - 2".

By the climbing book (Sonora Pass Climbs?), I'm pretty sure I climbed this route.. but it was different than described above. I found it to be awesome, tight hand jams with a comfy rest every 15' or so. No wide section and the largest piece was a #1 camalot. Very enjoyable. It was a little mossy at the bottom, but nothing too bad.
This climb can be identified by finding the sweet looking hand crack on the right third of the grotto wall. There is a small roof just to the left of the start of the climb.

this climb was fun, but personally I thought Granted was a much better 5.9.

Didn't try Granted, but this climb is quite fun. Great hands for most of the way, and an awesome way to approach Squealer. Can comfortably link the two with a 70m rope. Great fun.
