Armatron, 5.9

Even though it is rated 5.9, the 3rd and 4th 5.6 pitches are the attraction of the route and what makes Armatron so incredibly unique. You are basically climbing on natural Brownstone bricks that look manmade for almost a full 300’. Although the protection can be sparse via a few #2 horizontal ledges along with some wire placements, the climbing is easy on bomber holds. The rock landscape on Armatron at this level is just amazing (photo).
