|Pistol Whipped Wall
Add Photo Add Comment Printer View
This climbs the face to steep headwall just right of Ricochet on the left side of the Pistol Whipped Wall.
An easy start up nicely featured rock leads to a scooped out area and then a prominent horizontal below a smooth headwall. Crimping your way over the headwall and then getting established above.is the crux, and the airy feeling adds to the excitement.
Although slightly chossy in the middle section, the rest of the climb is on good rock and a bit more traffic will help to clean this up nicely.
6 bolts, chain anchors

Did this route lose a key hold on the lip of the bulge, right side? Kinda looks that way to me...

yes, a hold broke just over the roof.
In June 2007 it was an awesome 11a route.
By Aug 2007 there was now a kinda nasty harder move added.

Reading the above note makes me feel better. Pulling that bulge goes a fair bit more than 11a. There is a good hold from where the broken hold is but getting there is a pretty difficult sequence. The fall is no big deal because there is a bolt right at your belly so go for it even if 11a is your limit.
