Last pitch of Goofer's Delight
« on: October 13, 2017, 03:00:12 PM »
Got to climb this this morning shortly after sunrise. Thanks to JoeC for the effort in cleaning it. It is super fun 5.6 climbing on the Airation Buttress. Joe has plans to clean the first 5.10a pitch as well but in the mean time if you want to climb some super fun exposed 5.6 on Cathedral here's the beta;

Rap in off the furthest right solid looking tree (use a cord & biner's, no fixed anchor) to the double bolt station Joe recently replaced below Tabu. Pull rope then lead out right on a very positive but still slightly dirty in spots flake/crack. It eats up good gear. Double length on the pine tree below an alternative 5.8 corner finish then keep going right on the insanely positive flake until you join up with the very last move of Camber, probably this last move is 5.6, otherwise I'd put the rest at closer to 5.5.

Double .75, 1, and 2 can be used but not necessary if you are comfortable at the grade... and the gear anchor above Camber can easily eat two #2's if you like....

It's really a fun pitch and I hope it sees some traffic and stays clean. It's the crack system on the right side of this photo:



You can see the 5.8 direct finish splitting off from where the pine tree is. I'll try that next time.

Did this again to finish a great day climbing all over the cliff... it really is super fun. Last move might be 5.7 but so well protected through-out. Check it out!
