US 34 Bypass
|797 page views|
1.2 miles west of the Beige Siphon tube in the Narrows on Practice Rock. The right side of the wall has two cracks, the one on the left is Safety in Numbers, 5.11. [U S 34 Bypass] is the broken wider more vertical crack on the right. Jam and edge up the crack, good placements at good stances, to the small roof. Reach out left and smear up the face (crux), to a good stance. Easy to the anchors.
Good protection with small nuts and cams, and a 2 and 3 inch cam or top rope.

There is a bunch of loose crap and choss at the top of this climb. Watch yourself.

This is a decent climb. The gear near the bottom is good, but is a bit sparse at the top. Climbing at the top becomes much easier. I used the crack for my feet, and the crimps on the face above the crack at the crux! Bolted anchor at the top.

Loose stuff. Watch the wobbly block below the crux. Lot's of junk on upper ledges as well. Also looks like one of the crimp holds on the face at the crux has broken off. Also a stuck purple TCU at the crux.
Fun route though.

Just climbed this a couple of weeks ago. Unless the hold at the crux just broke, this route is in the same condition as it has been. There are some places (crimps) at the crux that appear to have been broken. No need to pull on the big block. It is easily avoided, just need to watch for the little rocks.
