This has one hard pull off the ground (technical crux) and a weird move up high (endurance crux). It's a great route. This is the second route to have gone up in The Quarry.


This is in the middle of the wall.


Cams, finger up to tight hands.

A good gear lead and a nice warm up. The first acent was done ground up on rope solo. It needed a lot of cleaning, so it was aided a bit but the anchor was hand drilled on lead. I lowered off pulled the rope and led it clean for the FFA with a little difficulty. The first move is tricky, but once it's figured out it's not bad. The finish is a little tricky as well, but good mental preparation for some of the other gear leads at this nice little quarry.

The moves are tough right from the start but there. The entire route is 'pumpy' and so gratifying when you finish it.

A good crimpy route from the start. The moves are all there. I found the crux to be the lieback near the bottom. After that, it gets more manageable. Another fun route on this fine climbing wall.
