Randy working the crux smears.


Hold Me Tight is a high quality slab climb which begins at the northeast corner of Evolution Rock. It follows a line of weakness up and left past three widely spaced bolts (all in good condition as of March, 2010). The crux involves a rather improbable series of moves on steep smears with little to pull on with your hands.


This climb begins on NE corner and heads up and across the east face. Receives early morning sun, afternoon shade.


3 Bolts. Medium 1 to 2 inches for the anchor (on the top of the formation) or larger 2-3+ inches gear for a lower anchor. An optional 0.5+/- inch piece can be placed to protect getting to the first bolt.
