Spencer starting Under the Knife.

Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>


Tenuous climbing up a sharp, steep wall. The almost featureless terrain and dead vertical face require technique and willpower. Stay on your game for the surprise finish!

Getting off the ground is a crux in its own, make a few tedious moves off the start and clip the first two bolts. From here work up and right towards the real crux that follows after a small bulge. Break through the middle ground using tight, thin crimps and delicate edging. A few small pockets offer relief, but most of the work is up to you. Get a quick rest and fire the remaining moves to the anchor. Super rock. Super line.


Under the Knife is the fourth route in from the left. It is just right of Diminished Capacity.


Eight draws to an anchor.
