Me on Strength in Numbers

Description 

One of the best moderates around, or anywhere for that matter... Certainly the best of its grade in the canyon - featuring fun moves and sequences with a steep, explosive start and an exciting finish. An area classic that should be at the top of your to-do list.

Sit-start on the large obvious twin hueco underclings. Make a big move straight up to the gaping hueco, then style your way up and left to the good right-facing edges that lead to the rest on the good jug/sidepull. A couple large moves up and left between crimps on the lip will get it done.

Great movement with nice variety - a must-try!


Location 

On the large overhanging face next to the trail (east side), look for the huecos down low on the right side of the overhang.


Protection 

Pads, good spot for the top-out

A great route with no one move being that hard, but the combination makes for a good problem.

Easier than Molly.

Very fun and just high enough to add some spice.

One of the top 5 problems at the Sads - no doubt about it.

A must do.

Doing the sds makes it that much pumpier/more engaging at the top, and the move is worthwhile in and of itself. Definitely a must do!
