Kunza Korner with climber at anchor

Seasonal Raptor Closure 2015 - Several Areas MORE INFO >>>

Description 

I would have to konsider Kunza Korner one of the best klimbs in the park! Worth the hike for sure.

Start just left of the cave and follow the corner to an anchor just below the roof.

Things start out pretty easy and build slowly as you ascend. The crux is thin and involves some face holds. You can sew the crux up with small stoppers but they are small so place a few.


Location 

just right of the arete Wave of Bliss, just left of the cave.

Protection 

Stoppers TCU's and Cams to 2"

Last time I climbed this route I noticed the flake out right at the crux is flexing and close to ripping off.

My new favorite trad line on Smith tuff. It would be worth a hike twice as long!
