The Pipeline....


This is an old school toprope that was climbed by Rufus back in the day. I don't know any of the history on it unfortunately except that it was a old school toprope that has since been forgotten about. With todays pads, I believe the best style is to climb it as a boulder problem. The crux is at a height that could be protected well enough by pads.


Located just left of Hollow's Way, it starts in the back of the roof dihedral and climbs out the layback crack to a large jug and a amazing mantle. After mantling, climb the easy face to a ramp that will take you to The Black Hole.


Lots of pads... lots.

Nice! More of a solo! Hey Matt, I believe that is called Twist and SHout...Rufus's Pipeline is a line just a couple of feet left of AHR, and probably goes at V8-ish. A line of super small crimps that share the topout with AHR. Regardless of names, etc., HUGE Props for sending a scary line! Young Doug.
