Battle of Wills, 5.9RX

Battle of Wills, 5.9RX

  • Battle of Wills – 5.9RX/
  • Nasty, unprotectable route in my opinion. Rarely climbed, thus dirty and untested varnish. I ran the route out only to have a piece give way (fully expected) and I fell a considerable distance ripping apart one of our double ropes on the sharp sandstone flake (photo). Very aesthetic, thus why I gave it a go. Up this large body consuming flake, then a tough move out left onto the hollow structure to run up a thin crack to the sloping finish. Don’t recommend trying it. Sand Dunes Area, Island in the Sky, Snow Canyon State Park, 2007

    yes, it is pure orange-red, nothing more than hardened sand really
