Route Summary | Ascent Notes (1)
Phillip Hranicka (bolted by Dave Sowerby)
six bolts plus a webbing anchor with (currently) fixed carabiners
A true power-endurance route, Psoriasis lacks the huge "thank god" jugs that appear on other French's Dome routes. After clipping the third bolt, the business begins and you'll have to get your shakes/rests wherever you can find them! While the crux is between the fourth and fifth bolts, the route remains pumpy to the anchor.
This route has been extensively cleaned, but the friable nature of the rock means that holds occasionally crumble slightly. Also, any rock to either side of the route should be considered suspect- belayers should probably wear a helmet.
Despite the less-than-ideal rock, Psoriasis is a great route with fun, challenging movement.
