Description:

This follows a crack/corner. There are pretty big dikes which you mantle. Some strectchy moves. Bolts at top of first pitch. Second pitch is short and real easy but little to no protection. I belive this route has been re-graded at 5.8, please correct me if I am wrong.

5 out of 5 stars gordy onsights The Groove

Super cool groovey corner with crack going right up the center.Big dikes running across route about every 3 to 5 feet with high steps and lots of mantels.I thought this route was 5.9?The hardest part is just getting on the route ,the first move to prtection is a little tough,and if you were to fall, it could be ugly if you fell to the left,little drop off from belay pad.
