Weston Markham on the opening moves of Slash and B...

Description 

The lesser of the two showpiece harder rock climbs in Kaymoor...but nevertheless, quite classic!

Crux comes early and hard climbing stays on you for the first 6 bolts, followed by a good stance and ending in a five-star coup-de-gras 5.10 slab takes you the the finish of entry level NRG 12d...unless you're a munchkin in which case you are going to earn your keep on this one. Good luck and get on it!

Location 

Past Scenic Adult, on the overhanging white face with the obvious start holds down and left of the first bolt.

Protection 

Bolts. 9(?) and anchors.

One of the best at the New. Steep, sequential, dynamic. Some of the crimps seem almost sculpted with climbers in mind. Almost every hold it positive. I'm 5'7'' and found myself dead pointing all over the route.

I think that when this route was put up it was 13a, it's in my guide book as 12d. I've heard around Roger's it's considered 12c/d. Never the less, it's hard.

I think the crux comes just before the rest, around bolt five or six, where I remember there being a couple of longer moves on slightly smaller crimps.

I agree, this is one of the best routes that I've climbed at the New. The moves link perfectly!

This route hardly felt entry level for 12d...in fact it felt HARD for 12d. The first half of the route is sustained and no rest at all, long long pulls and pretty tenuous feet the whole way. It's not over until you rock up and over past the 6th bolt. Savor the 5.11- to the top...as it's great rock climbing all by itself and is still interesting and enjoyable. Perfect rock climb!

I agree - this is certainly solid if not hard at 12d. I remember hangdogging it thoroughly and multiple cruxes down low with some challenging clips too. 5.12d+ imo. One of these days I plan to send that thing. Truly a trophy line and one that deserves bragging rights for the sender.
