5.9c | Arthur Page (MRG)

This route is a tough one in the back corner that requires a lot of wall play and lateral movement at the bottom. Once you get up to the transition, it’s a quick grab of a few small chips and then you’re at a solid top hold. For about a week,I was 50/50 changes for making this climb. The smaller holds after the halfway point would always slip me up. I found myself with bent elbows trying to do a pull-up on them to advance. The trick is to counter balance and make a more measured left hand grab. From there it’s fairly straight forward.
