Grab the Grissle (gristle?)

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Grab the Grissle (gristle?)

Yours truly on one of the more popular routes at Wonderland. A six (if i remember correctly) bolt climb with some slab and some steep stuff, as seen here. The small buttress that is home to this route is mid-slope and you can almost start the climb just below the roof by side-hilling in along the slope and clipping the 2nd last bolt. I guess one could walk off at this point as well, but you would miss the best part of the route! Thanks to Liam for the shot.

Placing gear in layback - hmmm!

Average Rating = 4.00/5 Placing gear in layback - hmmm!

This little 5.10a corner crack does not look anything special for it's grade. But it's an evil one. One side of the corner is overhanging and there are lot's of tiny pebbles in the crack. The entry opens up a lot and so you already did a tricky entry boulder, when it comes to placing gear from the layback position. The guide book even states, that enough people coming for the 5.13d sport climb in the overhanging wall to the right, have failed to even finish the supposed 5.10 warm up in that corner beast :) - climber: Manu

Manu in "Lutzverschneidung". The route is only rated 5.10a, but it's a real pumpy beast. Speed is the most effective weapon to fight it. Placing a lot of gear from the layback position can easily throw you out, even if you onsight much higher grades normaly.
