5.7 PG Olive Oil

Solid climbing at the grade all the way through. Varied climbing, gorgeous rock, & lots of serious runout all the way through. No bolts on the route now, though chops are not even visible. The climb begins with very serious runout slab from the ground up to about 20 feet or so. Stay right to pull the bulge. It’s Harder on the left. The runout traverse on pitch four is also scary but very juggy & rope drag is the challenge. The Crux is pitch 5, which also begins with a runout traverse right off the anchor. Very Poor pro until you get up further into the crack. From there it is pure steming on fantastic rock which eventually becomes more of an offwidth chimney. P 5 is one of the best pitches I have ever climbed. The gulley descent is quite long & relentless. Olive oil is a full on trad line made to order for trad purists.
