Porter warming up on Pudd's Purty Dress 5.12 09-20...


Work up the chimney, corner feature till you can step left onto the face. Head up the left facing flake that arches to the left out onto the steep wall. Once the flake ends start a series of boulder problems on crimps and pockets up the steep orange wall with rests in between on horizontals. The crux comes with a really long reach going to the 9th bolt. Finish by pulling delicately onto the slab.

Fun route with a good variety of holds, a fairly distinct crux though plenty of other difficult moves, and the potential to blow it all getting onto the slab.


At the far right side of Kaymoor slabs locate the steep wall that is set in a little from the rest with a left facing corner/chimney at the right edge. Pudd's Pretty Dress starts up this corner and takes the left line of bolts up the orange section of the wall. There is a line that goes more straight up from the 2nd or 3rd bolt that is 5.13a.


10 bolts and a bolted anchor.

12d going on 13a. I guess it depend on what, if anything you can get back on the "rests'. Hand jam at the big undercling was way critical for me. exciting finish!

Amazing route. This and Slash&Burn are probably the area's "must do" 12+ face climbs.
