Sign of the Times (First Pitch). Two routes climb...

Description 

Sign of the Times is a nice moderate 5.11 that is not quite as polished as some of the others on this wall. There is bit of thrutchy climbing at the start which can provide a nice break from the more common sharp crimps and tweaky pockets.

Begin with balancey moves up the undercling. Sloping crimps and a good pocket provide access to the diagonal rail up & left. More undercling/sidepull business leads to the slab and easier, though still engaging climbing on textured stone.

This line serves as the approach pitch for two routes on the upper headwall. Use a 70m rope to climb the upper pitches from the ground & lower back down.


Location 

Immediately left of Trout Fishing (the brown, wet-looking route that climbs into & around an overhanging, Rt-facing corner).


Protection 

~8 bolts to 2BA. Sitck clip recommended to protect the boulder problem start.
