Difficulties be Damned (5.14a) Cathedral

(1/3) > >>

Yes, I finally sent my project. In the end a small tweak of beta had me send on my first try using this sequence. Almost 2 years of bad beta! Here is the info

This route is basically a direct start to the Soft Iron aid route. Same start as the second pitch of Highway 61, then up the corner using some crazy beta, 13b-ish to here. Get a small shake then launch into a long series of hard moves, joining the soft iron route. Gain the hanging crack, and enjoy some awesome 12a climbing to join the finish of highway 61.

I placed 4 new bolts on new territory for this pitch, use one bolt on the iron route, and 5 pieces of gear, fingers, a .5 camalot, and a small nut.

Awesome climbing!


Looks awesome Jay, congrats.

Damn, that's impressive! Congratulations!

Nice Work Man!

Jay congratulations on your new route!
I only wish that I could try it but, you are in a special league of talented climbers that I am not worthy of belonging. I am elated that you were able to reach this goal through tenacity, hard work and skill.
