Description 

Joy to the world. All the boys and gurls. Joy to the climbers in the deep orange cave, joy to you and me.

Iliada Right is right where you want to be. Unfortunately, it's where most everyone else wants to be, too, so this sector sees a lot of traffic. Think belaying in a mosh pit; just remember to keep your elbows up! Still, with more stars than a Hollywood blockbuster premiere, the crowds and the gawkers and even the early, frying-eyeballs sun at Iliada Right are worth it.

Long, tufa-lite steeps on the left, steeper and deeper tufa madness on the right. There's even some 30m softies on the extreme right that send so soft that old man on the beach hawking sponges crushes them sailor crunk in flip-flops.

Oh-yeah. And don't forget the showcase cave with a 12b (7b) test piece so brilliant you'll buckle at the knees just from looking at it.

Joy indeed.


Getting There 

Follow directions to Iliada general (see the previous page), then keep hiking uphill until you see that last, striking cave, dazzling in ocher hues and climber crews (Hey. It rhymed. K?). If you start seeing gray, blocky bullshit business, then you've gone to far. WHERE ARE YOU GOING!?! FEARAL GOATS WILL DEVOUR YOU!

"Those crimpers are MONEY!"~Matt Nance[The following is as reported by Mr. Nance.] A two-crux power animal. Works up hero tufa jugs right into a Euro smackdown crux just as the wall seems to un-steepen a bit. Jet past (you've got a long way to go, suckha), and move up the powerful tech-y face, comically sustained. But you won't be laughing long if you don't take advantage of the rest before you get to the vicious crimp crux and have to fire through the unexpectedly sharp and highly sequential cr...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
