Headache, II, 5.10a

  • First Pitch - 100’- 5.9+/
  • I suppose there is no 5.10 move on this pitch, but if you are not a great crack climber than it goes harder than pitch 2 and 3. Start off with a beautiful #2 crack, jamming and stacking off the deck for approximately 50'. Then it opens up to more mixed terrain (photo above), but still utilizes good crack techniques. You come to a mellow overhang you can turn on facial features to the right or maneuver directly up and over to the anchor. A couple of biners are here for those wanting to bail the route (2007). The roof of the 2nd pitch is directly above.
