Careno Corners Pitch #2

Careno Corners Pitch #2

Looking up at the second pitch of Careno Corners after backing off of a lead attempt at it. The guidebook calls for pro to 4", whatfuckingever. Have a nice time soloing that vertical 8" 5.9 squeeze at the base. I'd recommend one 5" cam, one 6" cam, and one #4 Big Bro.

Thanks man. It seems pretty doable with some big pro. I was pretty miffed that a 3 pitch 5.9 route, that they expect you to solo the only 5.9 climbing on the route. Stupid.

gear is kinda hard to place, most placement go where you want your hands, largest cam we brought was a#3 which was places at mid hieght. you can get a good nut or green alien out right right before you enter the dark void. small cams work best to keep your holds open. its a grunt. martin the 3 p. of RR was one of the best 8's, i think!

Re: gear

Interesting. That little crack at the start was flared. Nice job getting up this thing.

Yeah, I like the Regular Route. Pitch 1 was hard but cool, pitch 2 is a fun dihedral, and I loved pitch 3 as well. Fun steep dihedral handcrack.

Later man.
