Pat on Torpedo Bay. Nov 2006


Very splitter fingers right off the deck to hands-free rest to very splitter ring-locks. 5.12c, 50ft.


The first route to the right of Nina at the Shipyard. A very clean splitter with painted chain anchor, steel biner to lower from and a plaque that won't be readable for much longer.


Triples of yellow alien/tcu to #2 friend.

I remember the bottom crux being very bouldery.. Painful locks with no feet. Having a set of nuts is very useful for the middle section, which after some breakage, is kinda funky.

Top section is about as splitter green camelots as it gets.

This is a great route but there is no way that its 12c when compaired to other 12's in the area. The stance in the middle makes it a very reasonable onsight and a set of stoppers, as MIYG recommended, is definitely the ticket for the middle section.

short section of burly, desperate fingers at the bottom to a no hands rest. Splitter .75's to the anchors. A quickdraw is handy as the fixed carabiner is fairly difficult to clip.
