time for the fun crack switch

Add Photo Add Comment    Printer View


Cool. Cruiser hands to thin hands splitter followed by a fun crack switch to locks on a dark rock shield.


20 feet right of the long (160') gold-size left-facing corner Comfortably Numb. At the top of small talus slope right of main alcove.


Mostly red Camalots. A few golds for the start and a couple of greens near the switch and finish.

This route is as aesthetic a line as you'll find at The Wall. Great climbing that is only slightly detracted from by the soft rock in the middle of the route. Otherwise, this would be a four-star climb.

This goes from #1's to #2's above the roof then to .4-#1 with a final hand jam right before the finish. Awesome route.
