Alphabet Soup, 5.10c
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
1st Pitch- 55m- 5.10c/ This was a great pitch by Yam standards in my opinion. Start out via some intermittent corners and cracks towards the right face of the tower. Keep climbing just left of the arête proper on some nice cracks and jugs. The climbing starts out and stays steep. Eventfully the holds become a little more sloped and technical. Use an under cling or two to move up and left and then back right into a small corner of sorts. The moves are mostly of the balancing type. Fixed pro (bolts 2010) protect any of the hard moves well with several small trad pieces filling in the rest of the pitch nicely. Once the ground eases, run over the ledge above to the wall in front for a fixed belay.
