This outstanding climb is the next pitch above Stubborn Nut (5.8 gear). The route takes you up fairly steep rock through great moves and awesome rock. With a 35m rope, you can link Stubborn Nut and Genetically Challenged as one 33m pitch

Descent Options:

Rap all the way to the ground on a 35m rope. A 60m will NOT reach.

3 out of 5 stars Pretty Hard

This was a nice route, but I was never sure I was on the right route - thought I was on the 11c. Perhaps I did the crux wrong, but for me I had to use a mono pocket and then some delicate climbing to the left. Harder than the other 11a's and 10d's I had done that day.

5 out of 5 stars Genetically Challenged

awesome route! definitely worthwhile...

Doesn't look inspiring at all from the ground, but from the anchor of Stubborn Nut, it suddenly does. It will not disappoint!
