Xyphoid Fever, 5.10c

  • Xyphoid Fever-Single Pitch- 5.10c/
  • This wide crack is full on through the roof, 5.10c? or 5.11?; who knows. According to a few internet postings, few if any are getting the route on-sight. The first and last third portion of Xyphoid is 5.9ish. However, the Roof pull involves an interesting wide stem into an overhanging knee jam and arm bar. Then a dyno from that position to two small edges on the inside left wall will get you through the crux. If you break out left of the roof, the climbing is never more difficult than 5.9 on good rock.
