Middle line is roughly the route. I'm guessing on bolt location. Padded Cell proper is right of it on the face.

Comments: I had no issues on it except for kicking down some pebbles when I led the 4th pitch. The belays seemed sheltered ass swell.

And as reference, I did the route years ago that got removed and I remember constantly dodging baseballs from above.

Comments: "Be warned: there's a huge, loose block... stay alert & be sure your belayer's got a helmet on!"

Think a helmet will do all that much to save you from a HUGE, LOOSE BLOCK?

Ha.

Comments: This route felt more like technical mountaineering than climbing. That's not a bad thing though.

Comments: It's refreshing to see newbies complain of bolts instead of wanting them everywhere.

Thank you!

Next time, look more closely at the book/MP and you'll find plenty of gear routes up there.

Comments: Harder than Becky's?! Nah.

It's really not bad although one certainly has to be careful.

Remember folks, climbing is dangerous. And skeery.


Although I have to admit, I don't miss the "slippery layback" approach that used to be in the area. That was far worse than this.
