Cholla Wall, 5.10-, at The Overlook is a super popular top rope route. Occassionally it gets led. George wanted to give it a go on the sharp end and pre-placed gear to check the placements. Here he goes...
Great C4 camalot placements in pockets protect the route very well.
For the final 8 feet the route gets quite steep. At the top is a great horn. George is eyeballing it.
There it is!

Super steep and thin from the second to the fourth bolt.
George starting up Thorazine Dream, 5.11d.
Looking north with Black Mesa in the middle. New snow on the Sangres from earlier in the week.
