Stacking on Low Cholesterol. 4/2012.

Photo: James...

Description 

The plaque at the base of this thing is hard to read but it says "Low (unreadable) 5.10 4/06"

Start about 50ft. left of Samurai Loving in a slightly offset splitter offwidth. It's pretty consistent with a slightly wider spot at mid height. Rap from chain anchors.


Protection 

one #4.5 for the start, then #5 camalots and #6 friends for the rest of the way.

'Low Cholesterol'

By chrisp

This is a beautiful wide crack. Thanks to whoever put the anchors in. My partner and I saw this thing last winter and wanted to put it up. This past weekend we were happily disappointed that someone put some anchors in.

I agree with the gear 4.5 down low, ever widening. I led this with 1 4.5, 1- 5 Camalot, 1- #6 Friend. I basically walked the pieces up in that succession.

This one is pretty good if you like OW. Tape the left knee, elbow, and shoulder...
Big Bros are not so secure owing to the slight flare; use large cams instead. New style #5 and #6 are a good idea. The top gets slightly narrower than the middle again & the new style #5 Camalot is good.

I thought I put the fa last April2006. I put the bolts, but then it turned out that someone else had climbed before. A guy called Alex, from the monsteroffwidth.com. Sure it is a fun route!

Heel toe cams for days. Some stacks, lots of arm bars, some wings. So good, used a sling to switch sides as I burnt out. Old 5 , 2 new 5's and a 6.

I'd say this is the best intro to IC wide climbing I've done. It was my first sandstone OW and I loved it so much I left blood from my ankles as thanks! I distinctly remember using (New BD) #5 for the start, #6 for the middle, and a #5 for the finish. A #6 gets jammed on the last 1/4 or so.

Fun Route! I ended up placing a new BD #5 at the beginning and walking a #6 for most of the way.

JoergB: Andres was there when we though we were putting the FA. He wanted to be the first, but he respectfully waited for his turn after us. Not that it matters, since Alex from the monsteroffwidth.com went a couple of years before, definitely before Andres.

In any case, Andres could climb this in his sleep. He is good at OW!
