Tandora starting up Lady Luck.

Description 

Jam, stem and lieback your way up large flakes clipping bolts as you go. The crux is near the top and involves a somewhat wild move to get established on the upper face that leads to the anchors.

Short and kinda scrappy but perhaps still worth doing as a warmup or whilst waiting for nearby routes to free up.


Location 

On the far left side of the wall between Better Luck Next Time and Lucky Cuss.


Protection 

4 bolts, chain anchors

I think we used to call this "grotty"..... don't expect much.

I don't know... I think this is a fun route. Good pumpy start and how often do ya get to do hand jams on a sport route? ;-)

hm... the route was short, but I don't remember the rock being bad quality, the bolts seemed solid and reasonably placed, the climb was maybe not too sustained, but there was a distinct crux. I enjoyed it, just a typical, average run of the mill sport route.

I liked this climb - very physical and unusual and held its interest all the way to the finishing clips. I like Bill's comment about using jams - that's the first time I've done hand jams on a sport route.
