The Harder They Come


"The harder they come, the harder they fall, one and all".... My second FA at the Waterfall, this adventurey, all natural gear line features some truly awesome hard climbing on the finger splitter top section, though you're going to have to use your head to get there.

To the right of Lochs Of Dread. Climb broken piller/OW crack to base of dihedral with a small overhang in it. Work your way up to the roof, and a weird #1 Camalot... After the roof there are some tight moves in the left facing dihedral which are probably easier for a shorter frame, but the gear gets better. At the 2/3 mark you will have to make some cruxy moves right to gain the finger splitter, and then enjoy the sustained finger jams, pockets, and stemming to the anchor.

You just can't go wrong with a little Jimmy Cliff now and then.
