  • Nr.26 (5.9): Short, varied and doable without a big rack of friends. Onsight

Jour 2: Secteur Donnelly Canyon et secteur Supercrack

  • Binous Crack (5.8+): Short but sustained corner and hard for a warm-up.
  • Gorilla (5.10): Long and sustainded BD3 crack with cruxy bigger pods. Nice corner with double crack to the top. One unseccesful toprope go and send on toprope afterwards. Much harder for Estelles handsize.
