M.L.K

Date of ascent: 29/05/17
Length/grade/stars: 18m HS 4b *
Climbers: M Griffin, A Dye

Start location:

Start 5m left of L.B.J below a slim crack/groove and below a small overhang at 11m (the overhang has distinctive, white swirls on the rock).

Pitch descriptions:

Climb up into the crack/groove and follow the line through the overhang on unexpectedly good holds. Don’t head up onto the ledge on the left, pull through the overhang instead. Many more jugs and much more gear than it appears from below. The line leads to the middle ledge after 18m.

Additional info:

Route called M.L.K after Martin Luther King as it’s next to L.B.J, Lyndon B Johnson, the president who enacted into law many of M.L.K’s ideas.
