Catching a freebie, P-1 Race With The Devil c. 198...

Description 

Good thin climbing with a serious runout on the first pitch.

Pitch 1: Do hard thin moves (11d) to make a difficult clip of the single bolt on the pitch. Pass the bolt and continue on the potential ground fall runout (10b) to No Go Ledge.

Pitch 2: From the left end of No Go Ledge climb past bolts (11b) to gain a prominent "fin". At the fin there are two choices, both runout. Either continue up the fin to the last bolt on the second pitch of Valhalla (5.7) or go up and right to the Hesitation belay (5.8).

Pitch 3: Depending on which belay was chosen, do either the 3rd pitch of Valhalla or the second pitch of Hesitation.


Location 

Between Buttress Chimney and the first pitch of New Generation.


Protection 

Bolts, thin to 2".

Stiff pulls and a good set-up for some of the harder routes at Suicide. The second pitch is pretty cool too.

It might only be rated 5.11d but you better be a solid 5.12 face climber if you plan on on-sighting this baby on the lead.
