Re: 5.10 crack testpieces

A few slightly more obscure, stout 5.10s - all worth checking out: • Popeye (I've seen a few strong climbers fall off the first move) • Desperate Dan • Mr. O'Clock (The Weak Link is pretty exciting for 5.10 too, but it's got a couple bolts) • The Full Pitch in Time • Backwoods Beebop • Token Brits ...

Re: 5.10 crack testpieces

Some more good mentions everyone, Squeamish sounds interesting (as does that entire wall). Hand Jive is a good mention, i remember it being sustained & tricky for 10b A few of these "classics" need to be narrowed down however as the OP is requesting recommends for TESTPIECES -not classics as well wi...

Re: 5.10 crack testpieces

Scrubber comes with some good ones for sure, elephant's arse & elephantiasis could probably both make the list. I agree with hypertension being soft 11a however high plains is a stretch @ 5.10+ although i did it after borderline so may have been suffering from fatigue as opposed to if u rap in or do...

Re: 5.10 crack testpieces

I say the toughest 5.10 pitch in Squamish is the Filibuster on Right Wing. 58m of sustained 5.10 battle, with no bolts, no rests, and a pump that will make 5.12 climbers puke. It makes the Split Pillar, the Milk Run corners, and Liquid Gold feel like a walk down Cleveland Avenue. This poor soul was...

Re: 5.10 crack testpieces

pretty good ones there for sure centrefold for sure is stout, i've never done mercy street, sunblessed or bop till you drop that one looks badass and no bolts were mentioned & the pillar obviously is a great testpiece. Does the buttress crux count as a pure crack as it has a piton @ the crux? we'll ...

Re: Smoke Bluff Crag vandalized/chopped

They are pretty brutal- definitely a malicious chopping, the rap chains on the climb beside are still there though? There is a tree there that will work fine but the bolts weren't hurting anything at this great teaching cliff, if the chopper wanted people to use the tree they would have taken the ha...
