Inept Tune (TR)


Start up the initial crack as for Planet Z, then cut left and up the face on delicate and somewhat friable edges. Easily set up as a TR after climbing either Planet X or Planet Y.


The face between Planet X and Planet Z.


None (TR).

Hmmm. We attempted a bolted route up this (a few feet right of the climber) and thought it to be in the 11 range. I should revisit this area

That'd be 'Planet Z' (5.10d), Adam.

Must have been a "high gravity" day for me Mike, so for ego's sake, I'm sticking with 11....lol

Adam;....that route Planet Z is PDH....(pretty damn hard)....5.10+/5.11-........AND it's way hard if you are shorter than 6' tall........it only has that one hard section at the top, and it's steep and you can't see the "secret" holds.....once you figure it out (and are tall)....you can "wire" the climb.
