Dangling Principles, 5.8

  • Dangling Participles- 90’- 5.8/
  • (photos) Mark Limmage added both of these pure sport routes to the wall in just the past few years (2004). They make perfect steep lines on varnish to fixed anchors. Be careful how you belay these routes. For the belayer to sit in the sun, the climber actually starts below the belayer, scrambling down into a narrow slot and then climbing the routes which are side by side. Of course the climber could easily pull the belayer off into the slot with a fall if folks were not paying attention. There are bolts on the south side of the top of this feature where you are tempted to sit for the belay. You just need to find them or lay down and spread your center of gravity. Fourteen bolts to anchor.
