Description:

Start in the center of the cliff between two obvious, vertical crack systems. Brock guidebook calls this "A Fraction of the Action" 5.10a. First bolt 15 feet up, crux is the first 25-30 feet. With the rope blowing in high winds I couldn't get both ends of my 60m rope to the ground for the rap. Probably a single 60m rope rap would have been OK, but I was more comfortable rapping off 2 ropes than risking running out at the cruxy section.

3 out of 5 stars 60 m rope comes up short.

This is definitely not 10c, maybe 10a but I'll go with the Handren grade of 10b. Speaking of Handren, he says the route is 90 feet. Uhh, no. Lowering with a 60 brought me down to the first bolt. I down climbed the rest (about 5.8/9). I'd say the route is about 105-110 feet. But, hey, every guidebook has a disclaimer saying that the information may be incorrect. Right?
