Comments: A fairly crucial hold broke off a few years ago making the start sequence more difficult, which may make the 11d rating seem/be a letter grade low. It's still good fun, just a bit harder on the ego...

Comments: I got on this route this year for the first time since we established it ~10 years ago and found it safer, more fun, and harder than I'd remembered. It appears that it has seen very few ascents, perhaps because of the name or because of its relative isolation for the grade. Regardless, while I still feel it only deserves 2*s it is definitely worth doing. I took several falls at the crux, a 4 move bolder problem, which resulted in bruises only to my ego.

Comments: The controversy on the bolting of this route and it's neighbor Schadenfreude, along with the fact that they were in the morning shade, had me on both several times this summer as warmups for the SW Wall. This climb is super fun, requiring balance, technique, and a bit of brawn. The bolt placements are well thought out and safe (requiring an attentive belayer at the bottom as is always true), given the ever-present variables at UEF of rock quality and rope drag. The first 12 feet are hard ... more >>

Comments: This route is actually about 100 feet left of The Other Side, just left of Wishbone. It was named after over-hearing some climbers say that Bradshaw aint no Spring Chicken...
