A Swiss girl laps up some High Fructose Corn Syrup

Description 

Good for a quick fix! Fun climbing.

Pitch #1: Climb thin edges and layback a flake-like feature up to the first, of three, roofs. High quality and compact rock with swirling and syrupy features finishes with a spectacular finale on unique rock. 5.8, 35m.


Location 

Located 8m to the left of Maudlin (4m to the left of Forgotten Ambition) and about 10m to the right of Senseless Banter.

Rappel the route with a 70m rope, two ropes, or walk off.


Protection 

QDs for 12 bolts. Some climbers may elect to carry a small assortment of Camalots and Nuts.

The anchor consists of two Fixe steel lower-off carabiners.

Again, using a rope shorter than 70m and lowering can potentially be dangerous. Tie knots into the ends of your ropes no matter what rope length you use and be careful.

Good route and quite clean. If you don't think the remnants of moss will clean up, just look @ the slab to the right. It was all covered in moss one day.

Just did the onsight today. Fun climb, nice and long. Good pockets and fun roof pulls with plenty to hold onto. I used 2x60 to get down and then TR for my partner. Worked out great. Thanks for the climb, and by the way it has cleaned up pretty nicely, just stay a little right until you pass the second clip.

This route is doable with a single 60 meter rope with some shenanegins. Just watch the rope ends and be ready to down climb the last five feet of easy fifth class terrain.

Nice climb! I felt like the moves were a lot of fun! The 60m was not enough, I walked off.
