Armed Robbery, 5.10c

  • Armed Robbery – 70’- 5.10c/
  • A very hard 5.10 in my opinion. Depends on the size of your hands I suppose. Also, this basalt is quite slippery until full on winter sets in, so if you can’t get your toes in the crack, this pitch is quite painful on the knuckles. Thin jamming for most of the route eventually opens up to much better hands and fists. There is a dual crack to the right that I used for the finish, but is not necessary. Small to medium pro.
