This is another great line on the south side of Brogan Spire with big holds and strong rock that isn't characteristic of the typical Smith Rock lines. The holds are huge and feel like you are wrapping your hands around metal.
This is the farthest left of the three short bolted lines that sit at the base of the Cave Route. Like the other routes, it's a short four-bolts before you reach the chains but it is steeper and requires a bit more technical movement.
Use smaller holds and get some high feet off the ground to reach up to a jug above the first bolt to make the clip. From there it's climbing up huge and strong jugs following your way up the bolt line. After the last bolt, work your way back to the left and fire up from a huge sidepull to big holds above the anchors.
No one move felt very hard but the crux comes on your way to the anchors as the fatigue starts to set in and the climbing becomes a bit more thoughtful. Overall, a great climb with clean falls on steep rock.

The Sterling Hollow Block is great at biting down on ropes when tying friction knots using a Prusik, Klemheist, or auto block. Its Aramid fiber construction helps resist abrasion and heat. Pony up a few extra bucks to have one hanging from your harness, you’ll end up using it.
