  • Description 

    This climb is a variation of the 2nd pitch of Jules Verne or T2.

    Start from the top of pitch 1 of either route.

    Traverse left and up(avoiding the major crack systems of pitch 2 of T2 and Jules Verne). Climb left and up across a exposed, licheny face on shallow, hueco features. A wide, diagonal crack system just above you provides a few chances for protection along the way. When you reach a bush, begin climbing straight up(passing the bush on its right side) into a shallow, right-facing corner, 5.9R. Continue up the shallow corner (protection is now abundant) with a finger-to-hand sized crack sytem as it angles left to join the final 100 feet of Kloeberdanz's last pitch. Belay at the upper ramp.

    The pitch is 180 to 200 feet long, depending on where you start.


    Protection 

    Standard rack.
