  • Description 

    The Karman Line is the hardest line to date at the Labyrinth. It took me well over 100 tries to complete, only because I constantly fell off the first move over and over, but also because there is an upper crux that had me baffled for a long time.

    It is one of the few stand start problems out there, though there is a sit start that would bump the grade up a bit. Start off the obvious crimp, pull into a shoulder intensive gaston, and crank past it. Then follow the insecure crack to the second crux, and topout on a great finishing hold.


    This is the the lower sector, roughly 5-10 minutes from the car.
