Guzzler, 5.8, Lost Wall, GA

Description 

A beautiful, jagged hand crack splits the face and eats up pro, giving Guzzler its name. This is a popular moderate lead, so be ready to stand in line if you don't get there early.

Follow the vertical crack up the wall to a short roof also split by a crack. Climb directly up through the overhang on hand jams and reachy holds, or play it safe by moving left to easier moves over the roof.


Location 

Starts 15' left of Somalian Hunger.


Protection 

Nuts and cams up to 2"; anchor status unknown.

There is a rock to sling up top, but be sure to back it up.

I loved this route personally. Bomber placements, a tough ending, the works. Be very skeptical of the tree at the top, although it does seem solid. I backed it up with the other tree behind it.
