Starting the undercling crux of Release. photo by...

Parking listed elsewhere is on private property MORE INFO >>>


Release starts on the far left side of the wall, below the left end of the horizontal. Climb through a series of thin edges to the horizontal. An interesting move laying back the good underclings of the horizontal and transitioning to the crimps above make up the heart of the crux. Continue on thin edges to the easy ramp that leads up and right to the anchor, shared with Blue Collar. Fairly sustained and a solid 5.10a in my opinion. Descend via easy walk-off to the northeast, away from the climbs, or down-climb Knobulator.
