This is some beta for willow's. Hope it helps.


Willow is a terrific Morrison traverse with classic moves. Virtually anyone who has been to the Lobby has tried this one. The route is a little too long to describe in detail, but essentially begin on the right side of the Lobby matched on a long diagonal hold a few feet above the ground. Traverse left about 5 yards, move slightly up to a small crimp match in a crack, and pop to the top jug. Stellar moves on overhung rock ultilize horns, crimps, and desperate slopers with intricate body positioning. There are a few secrets to uncracking this one, however, ultimately everyone seems to find his/her own beta. I remember trying this problem six years ago, when I could only pull a couple moves at a time. After growing stronger and wiring the moves, Willow serves as an excellent warmup for Morrison's less delicate and more strenuous problems.


Perhaps place a pad in the corner, a few feet left of the starting holds.

The two times I visited Morrison it was pretty empty, so I didn't get much of a taste for the "scene" if you will. I was impressed by the length of the wall. It's not just concentrated in a one hundred foot band like I am used to at home. The long traverses in the cave parts are pretty damn neat. Definitely bring a crash pad for these, as the headspace is so short at times that spotting is difficult. Bring two or more pads to do long traverses.
