Norse Code is a route best left to those that are true Cirque enthusiasts. It is short, steep and the hardest section is right off the ground. The two move V6 boulder problem is actually quite entertaining. After pulling the intro crux travel through a couple bolts of easy climbing on jugs and edges.

One more very strange redpoint crux awaits you just before the chains. The moves are not too difficult, but on the onsight its tricky to see how to best grab the holds. Your punishment for falling at this move is a ride into the rattling pod tree. Your failure here is accentuated by the rattling pods which sound like maracas.

Considering that the highlight of this route is the potential fall you can take in to a tree it probably doesn't warrant more than one star.


Just to the right of the rattling pod tree. Identified by a stack of cheater stones.


6 bolts + anchor
