Petrified, 5.10c

  • Petrified - 80’- 5.10c-d/
  • This is the route I did in the winter with gloves….geez this limestone is damn cold in the shade. We were up there in the morning, should have waited until the afternoon. We did this route then got the hell out of dodge and found sun and warm temps at Chuckawalla Wall. Very sticky hard limestone (don’t fall on lead as it will cut you up!) up nine bolts to anchor. Orion and Petrified are side by side in the same alcove, but you can stem up the first portion of Petrified before you hit the sparse pinches and pockets that are the mainstay on both routes.
