The Main Wall of The Joint.

Description 

This is the first granite wall at the top of Sinks. It is split by a huge corridor. The cliff is tiered and most climbs are on the lower lever. They are mostly slightly overhanging on good quality stone.


Getting There 

Park at Bruces bridge. Walk about a furlong up the trail and then scramble up a talus slope to the base of the cliff.

Full Tilt follows the black streaks just left of center, right of the gray patch.

Full Tilt 5.13b 8a 29 IX+ E7 6c  WY : Sinks Canyon : The Joint
Follow a seam on the left side of the Joint wall. Goes up a black streak. Good movement and pumpier than you would think. Expect positive crimps up to the last bolt. The crux is the last few moves to the anchor involving a crappy finger lock in a flare and a long move to the clipping hold....[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
