Hare and Tortoise, 5.10a
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
3rd-4th Pitches- 60m- 5.10a/ I combined the next 20m or so of easy ground (3rd pitch) with the lone 5.10 pitch (4th pitch), which is not the crux pitch of the route. Continue up the chimney until the ground opens up. Look for a bolt line that runs up a rib on the slab face above. Move up to a horizontal seam, move left, then angle back right, following well placed bolts with just a few moves over a bulge at the grade up to a ledge with a very chossy pedestal on the right. Avoid the pedestal and do a gear belay to the left in solid cracks below another bolt line.
