Both Reckoning and Pure Joy share the same start. Begin in the easier crack, then climb the very nice finger crack on the right side of the broken column (left is Pure Joy, .10c). Rock quality is very good, as is gear.


Approach the west side of the Bend. This route and numerous other very nice cracks are located in the same general area. You could spend an entire day climbing just these routes.


Pro to 1.5 or 2", emphasis on smaller gear. Bolts/chain anchor at the top. Rappel with 60m rope (50 would likely make it).

Fabulous route. Locker fingers with feet you need to occasionally work for.... endless awesome gear is the bonus. Do this route! It is every bit as good as its neighbor Pure Joy.

Gear: heavy on small to green camalots, with one #1 and #2 camalot. I placed lots of nuts of all sizes.
