BETA PHOTO: Palming Baby Heads, 5.12b.

Description 

Palming Baby Heads is a great challenge that tackles the tallest part of this cliff. It climbs the flaring crack on the right side of Classy Cliff proper. After the first 2 bolts, use all of your body tension to keep you from swinging out of the flaring crack. The hardest moves are at the top of the crack getting established on the slopey ledge. A good rest here is welcomed relief before embarking on steep, blocky climbing past a few more bolts to the anchor.


Location 

This is the rightmost sport route on the main face of Classy Cliff. Look for the bolt line that follows the flaring crack.


Protection 

9 bolts; chain anchor.

My favorite line on this cliff and a proud 12b at that.
