Comments: This is a great addition to the area with enjoyable climbs on good rock and a minimal approach. Thanks to the route developers for such a fun area.

Comments: Great movement on this climb but it's very, very short; starting direct from the ground will bump up the grade slightly.

Comments: Good climbing along the arete up high to shared anchors with the route to the left.

Comments: Multiple ways to do this climb with lots of stemming and lie-backing. Could easily be led on gear if one was so inclined.

Comments: Started from the lowest possible start which added a few more moves a bit of difficulty. Fun climbing with a great sequence past the last bolt if you stay direct.

The anchor consists of two bolts and hangers only with no hardware to lower-off.

Comments: Excellent thin face climbing down low to easier moves at the top. Well worth doing if in the area.

Comments: Fun climbing up positive features with a cruxy thin start. The anchor consists of 2 bolts with a solitary quick-link on each hanger which is less than ideal; rapping off is recommended to lessen the damage to your rope.

Comments: Did this again after 20+ years and agree with the other comments regarding the grade.

Climbed this two different ways - from the ground direct and staying directly over the bolts which seemed about 5.10 and also the line to the right following the crack and clipping the bolts with the left hand which seemed more in-line with the 5.8 rating although the start was a little harder (5.9).

Comments: Short but fun with the crux moving past the 2nd bolt.

Am curious why so many Goolsby routes are set up like this one w/ no easy or safe way to descend.


Did you notice in the route description that there's an easy down-climb from this route?

Comments: It was during the 1986 contest that, in response to some of the contestants wearing lycra tights, Ron Kauk said "John Wayne never wore lycra!".

Which of course lead to this design:

Kauk, of course, wore jeans.
