Description:

This is called Sinbad-Herbert in some guidebooks. A fun steep crack, that takes great pro and has an easy rappel off chains. THe climb is easier if you make use of stem on the opposing wall rather than stay in the corner. It's fun to try both variations. CI edit: There is a bolted extension to this climb which continues above the anchor. About 8 draws? the bolted section is 10d, the crack is .10b. The bolted section has bolts right at the hard moves. From the top, you can rap with 2 ropes, 1 70m rope, or traverse right to the groove bolted anchor and rap w/ a 60m. Be sure to do this thing as one pitch!

Red Point Red Point ascent by: aerili on 2010-09-19 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars Finished off the rest of the quality part of the pie

Led p1 (redpoint); followed p2 (flash). Thoughts: p1 feels like 10a if you stem the corner. I've TR'd the crack w/out stemming and it's pretty powerful and feels 10b/c-ish to me, but clearly contrived that way. P2 is scary off the belay (HIGH first bolt with climbing over very dirty and VERY hollow flakes--DON'T fall). The rest of p2 is quality, with the crux being very thought-provoking and technical moves. Very short people will find this pitch much harder than 10d.
