Harry Wrags 5.12a (Sport) ***

First Ascent: Kipp Trummel, Dave King in 2014
Length: 60ft
Bolts: 5 (report bad bolts/anchors)

Click for more images
15 feet of easy crack climbing (cam optional) leads to a ledge from which you can stick clip the first bolt. Stick clipping the second bolt from here is recommended too. A brutal boulder problem over the roof results in easy face climbing on large, solid holds.

Fa: K Trummel and Dave King. 5 and anchors. 2 camalot can protect bottom 15 feet. Having second bolt stick clipped from ledge might be nice as the crux is on ya. Sweet sequence with easier climbing above. Gonna start it at 12a.

Broke a little foot spike off in the crux. Not sure if my beta was the same as FA, but did not use the left hand pocket - felt 12b-ish to me. The upper headwall climbing is absolutely glorious on this route.

great work!!!! only wish the fist 20 feet were better

Seems like a broken hold has rendered the crux miles harder than 5.12-anything

That was me that broke the hold. I ended up doing it the way Kipp did it which didn't use that hold and yea it is a tough one.

Kneebar? Seemed ridiculously hard...

I got suckered into staying left of the crack. Found some holds right of the crack. V4 to 10a climbing. The 10a portion is enjoyable I guess...
