The obvious overhanging crack splitting the main wall at its highest point. You will actually feel pretty cool on this because you are guaranteed to climb higher than whoever is left and right of you. Jingle those cams and grunt really loudly while talking about how lame sport climbing is. Then pull your stuff up, yell down "zero bolts bitches!", and rappel down from a tree far away from the climbers you just pissed off. Or lower from the chains and run.
Moves: Pumpy
Descent: Walk off
Stays Dry: Light rain

Looks like a 6 star line, climbs like a 3 star line (topped with a mud-filled chimney). Not recommended to lower from the webbing at the top since it causes brutal rope drag - belay from top.

First 40 feet were excelent Raiden and you know this. That chimney at the top is extra exciting in wet, muddy conditions.. Did he mention to belay from the top??

Raiden, did you take my cleaning carabiner? We were able to clean as long as you extend the anchor from the top over the lip. Then we just walked up an took the anchor down. Had not issues cleaning in this fashion.

Do you mean the fixed nut with the biner about 1/3 of the way up? It popped out after I put my rope through it and started to lower (maybe I need to lose some weight). Didn't have quite enough webbing to make it over the lip so maybe it would be fine like that. Where did you walk up at?

Walk ups left and right of the main section of Fruit Wall, left is slightly easier. The FAs have OK'd an anchor at the top of thr chimney wants to add some stainless gear up there.

Thanks Dustin. I talked to Dyl he said just put the anchors after that jug horn before the chimney since nobody likes chimneys anyway ;)

Route has anchors. If you want to get to them, you'll need to climb the chimney; it protects well.

Cool that people are getting on this monster. I'm psyched to hear there's anchors on it, and that they go above the chimney, I thought it really capped the whole experience off haha. Good stuff ya'll.

Fun adventure climbing to the top with lots of face holds. Still dirty in parts, so bring a brush.

Does this route require wide gear, or is up to a bd 4 solid?

Nothing bigger than a 4 required
