Add Photo Add Comment    Printer View

Description 

The first pitch is short but stellar. Tight hands with a little bit of other sizes thrown in. Goes at 5.10c. The second pitch is real steep looking.


Location 

Undeneather the huge roof by the bridge. You can't miss the roof or the climb.


Protection 

Hands and smaller. Not sure what you need fo the top.

Orange TCU works well to protect the arching crack (crux) near anchors. Also, watch the feet here...polished and slick!

This used to be rated 5.10c but I agree with the 5.11 rating. Rattly finger jams right where the crack starts to curve to the right. Orange and yellow TCU's work really well there.

11 is if you go out the roof, 10b to the first anchors methinks.

I just climbed P1 a few days ago. 10c is a stretch. Too secure to earn that grade. Compare it to Maranatha...a 'real' 10c.

That's funny, Jeff... I felt the opposite. I thought "Maranatha" was pretty casual while "High Times" is one of the only 10's I've fallen on at the New.

Certainly 10+ and secure jams, but the feet through the crux are amazingly polished and slick. I couldn't give it 5.11 because the rest of the route is very solid, but I've seen many, many solid 11 climbers eat the face hard after their feet have blown at the crux.
