Topo of Crusher


Excellent, varied climb with great exposure. Dihedral to lieback to exposed arete to crack, super fun! Need a 70m to lower to ground, but you can use a 60m if you belay from the top of the 3rd class.


This route is between 3.B.A. and That's a Cold Shut Darlin.


11 bolts, 2 bolt anchor

Great climb! Gets your attention leaving the block to gain the arete-- felt more like a 10a move and then the rest 5.8/5.9 climbing. Well protected!
