Pureblind Pillar, 5.8-9
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
2nd Pitch- 70’- 5.8/Besides the alternative final pitch, this is the crux climbing of the day. Climb up a right facing corner/flake and traverse out right via airy terrain on suspect whitish rock. By the time you reach the bolt, you already did the challenging climbing, thus it is not that well positioned for protection and there is no pro to be had once you leave the confines of the flake. After the bolt, move just slightly more right and then up easy ground to a huge ledge atop the small pillar.
