Moving through the crux of Hanging by a Thread.
Open, with restrictions: Park on the street MORE INFO >>>


A few funny moves off the ground lead to the crux above the 3rd bolt. Some easier ground leads to a long move and more fun climbing. A final crux at an undercling leads to a short crack and the anchors.


Down in the pit below the roof. Left of Leviathan.


13 bolts to open shuts.

The second crux felt more like .12a to me, but the pump is friggin gnarly.

Be careful as the loose flake near the 6th bolt has now become worse and has an additional piece that has loosen. It will probably be trundled in the next few weeks.
