Cerberus 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a  North America : Canada : ... : Tantalus Wall
Follow Tantalus Wall or Milk Run for 3 pitches to the halfway ledge, or rap in to the upper pitches. Move up right 15M and gain a superb dike trending right across the wall(9 Bolts, 10D). The next pitch, turning through the roof is long and sustained, following the dike the whole way(14 bolts, 11D). Climb a hollow flake (SKETCH!!!) to a belay(11D). A tricky start on the second to last pitch scares some away(11D). Save a #2 and #3 Camalot for the last pitch....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
