Where is the crux on Future Shock
« on: October 20, 2002, 07:55:48 PM »
Where exactly is the crux (or cruxes) on Future Shock?  I tried it today and made it 2 feet below the anchor before being stopped by a water streak flowing over the last mantly move.

I'm curious if I actually did the crux already or getting to the belay is the crux.  It certainly was while wet.

Thanks,

David

even that mantle move is pretty hard and a bit ran out, i think the crux is in the middle of the traverse -between 3 and 4th bolt if I rememebr correctly. Too bad it was wet! :)

The crux is definitely between the 3 and 4th bolts...you have to make one hard smear move on a very shakey foot hold.  The mantle is a bit in your face, but easier than it seems once you find the right holds...and it is a ways from the last bolt, but the fall is very clean (I know first hand  ;D).

I think the crux is stepping off the rock and having the revelation that you are going to have to go to work in a few hours.

Now that I would agree with!
