Daddy's Got New Shoes (5.6)
« on: July 21, 2011, 03:27:35 PM »
Daddy's Got New Shoes 5.6
Directions: The climb starts on a mossy face behind a large oak tree 30' left of 3 Brushes.

Description: It was past time for Al to get some new climbing shoes and he used this new climb as an excuse for the purchase. Nice climbing for the intermediate trad leader. Altho the face looks mossy, the hand and foot holds on the lower face have been cleaned, the upper face above the arch is clean and the rock is nicely textured.

Pitch 1: Climb the mossy face up a couple of gear placements, then past 2 bolts to a stance at the base of the right-leaning arch. Surmount the arch on the left, climb a few moves and look for a Tricam pocket. Continue up a clean brown face to a 2-bolt anchor.  80' (5.6)

Gear: A modest selection of cams from .5 Camelot down should do, with 8-10 slings/draws.

Descent: Rappel the route with a single 60 meter rope.
