Description 

Excellent climb, one of the best of its grade in the Gorge. Mantle up past two bolts heading right to a wide step-across to the left. Crimp and smear up a slabby section to a small ramp to the left. Lieback around and up to the dihedral and then straight up to the anchors.


Location 

Upper Gorge Flavin Haven


Protection 

11 bolts

Highly recommended climb. If your accustomed to vertical face climbing like me, this is a really interesting foray into angles of all kinds.

Lava Haul was extended to higher anchors. I counted 16 bolts. Use a 70 meter rope. The grade is still 10a. This route was originally set as a rope solo ground up using a soloist. The lower anchors were used to accommodate the shorter ropes of 90's. you can get to the original chain anchors (maybe a 10b move) and set up a top rope on Caldera with a 70m rope. Those anchors were used to set the "point full" variation on Caldera.

One of the best 10a's I've ever climbed, thanks Kelly. Quite an adventure with the slab, liebacking, crimps/edges, traversing, crack, jugs, high stepping, mantling....use almost all on this route. And love that it's long. Bring an extendable to prevent rope drag on the 5th or so bolt.

Bring 17 draws if you want to clip them all.
