Description:

Blank Page starts from the base of the fallen boulder, the rightmost route on Serpent Wall. The first bolt is high, leaving a leader exposed, but the initial moves are no more than 5.8 - very juggy and positive with plenty of feet and hands. The section from the third bolt to the anchors is the hard part - it's nearly vertical and pretty washed out with very few and small crimpers, and getting the right feet is key.

3 out of 5 stars Oops

Somehow the first bolt got unclipped once I went past it, so I essentially soloed up to the second bolt. Scary.

3 out of 5 stars Enjoyed it

The start and finish are the meat of this climb. I prefer thin face climbing and this is what it offers at the top. There is a key finger pad hold you need to find in order to make the final move to the anchors. Feet are also critical when make the last move.

1 out of 5 stars yet another hard but Meh thin finish

Damn, I finally used this dubious "meh" word. I'd zero-star this except perhaps it could help prep for longer thin sections of Bolt Talk and its ilk.

BETA SPOILER...get the no-hands-rest. LH low sidepull crimp; RH knob crimp; LH high above the thin horizontal ridge to a better crimp. The ridge itself isn't good enough.
