Soft for the guidebook, I'd actually call it more of a 5.9 than 5.10a (but the guidebook says 10a and my partners disagree with my personal assessment). Mostly bolted, and interestingly so. This is a fun climb that can be a little heady, causes one to think a bit, and requires route-finding skills.

Follow the bolts to a blank section, traverse left over the arrete / right-facing corner and follow the line essentially straight to the chains.


Very near the right-most section of Hogwild, just up to the right of where the path meets the cliff.


Mostly bolted, but bring a couple of small to medium sized cams for the middle-upper section.

Nice route...well done, Petch. I think if you'd done it a few times, it would seem like 5.9, but the first time up, it's a 10a.

I remember there being some interesting movements/body positioning. Fun route.

Definitely not 50 Ft. as posted above. Make sure you have a 60 and getting down will stretch the rope almost all the way.

It's about 90' and nearly runout with wild traverses out left onto the buttress up to 15' above a bolt (or more if you don't get in a cam or two between the 4th and 5th bolts). The crux is a funky mantel just above the first bolt--my partner and I both thought it was real hard for 5.10a. If you get above that you should be okay.
