Two Fingers in the Hole

Post by MW » Thu Dec 15, 2005 11:08 am

Anybody got an opinion on the grading of the newish route on Mooihoek at Everest - Two Fingers in the Hole?

Its really only that overhang move that makes the climb. I have seen it put down anywhere between 18 and 21, though I thought 18 was pretty accurate. Just wondering what anyone else thought of it...

Whice crag or boulder is it on ? may have done it, did a few new routes, one being Big Air, certainly an 18 (first pitch) then very easy from there... The others routes were a little more sustained and enjoyable for a gas

Its on Mooihoek Mountain next to Rhino on the City Hall Steps (actually shares 3 bolts with Rhino). Left of Men Behaving Badly and Fight the Feeling. The next 2 pitches are easy (12/13). Maybe same climb(Big Air)? Definitely saw a route guide on that said its name was Two fingers etc...If you did it, someone has the name and grading a bit confuzzed.

Hey Meg

I spoke to someone who knows the climb. He doesn't know its name but he says the first pitch is an 18.
Now we just need to find out about that climb on Ostrich Egg...

Goes at bout 18/19 depending on your abilities. given a grade of 21 but doesnt quite live up to that. the first pitch can be aided at teh crux (a two finger pocket) good route but nothing too special.
