The Reacharound – 5.12b

22m / 72ft, 8 bolts

Make some tricky moves up the face to reach a left-facing corner feature. The crux comes as you grope leftward for holds and maneuver up the dihedral

    Very contrived at the start. The roof was fun though.

    The true crux is def getting a draw into the bolt before the climbing crux... scary. Fun bouldery moves around the dihedral bulge. Fun climb, unique moves - better than 2 stars but maybe not quite 3

    Is it a flash or just a red point first go? I did it after got pull, but both were first go?!? What is it?

    Fun tricky climb. Blew the onsight when I went too far left early on and grabbed a mossy sloper, then didn’t reacharound far enough and blew the second go. Third go with an extended draw at the crux.

    Consolation prize for failing, yet again, to send Heifer Down. Bottom was trickier than I expected. Second go.
