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.

Given Black Diamond’s reputation for strong and durable hard goods, we decided to give their 9.9mm rope a try as our go to gym rope. The rope is priced right and works great out of the box but early signs of wear in the gym make it hard to give it the nod as a preferred gym rope.
