The Warrior, 5.11a
|[ Sizes: Orig | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
5th Pitch- 170’- 5.11a/ This pitch includes the crux move of the route. Continue up the crack and pull a small roof out right. Plenty of features in the crack and on the wall make this easier than it looks from below. Continue up the crack which turns to finger pockets. Try to avoid using a key finger pocket for a gear placement and make a tough overhanging corner move via technical stemming to gain easier ground. Immediately start to traverse up and right on a moss covered wall. The climbing should never be more difficult than 5.9 on the face, but it is quite run out through two hard to see bolts that slightly angle right as you aim for an obvious break in the white roof above. Pull the airy roof on huge jugs to a fixed belay immediately above.
