Janelle cruising Action Candy with the Killer Cave...

Description 

Well protected and fun climbing - a long line with many nice pockets along the way. Some nice bulges up higher. A great route to get the climbing flow going.


Location 

On the right side of the Killer Cave and slightly uphill is a ledge with a large juniper. Several 5.11 and 5.10 routes and Action Candy ascend the wall here. Action Candy is the furthest right line.


Protection 

15-16 bolts to anchors.

Juggy and easier near the top, one could skip a bolt or two.

a great route, rated 10a in the current guidebook, and definitely feels that way. balancy climbing to the first bulge, where it gets a little trickier. dont forget some shitty pockets might turn into bomber underclings.

Seems like pretty sustained 10/10a moves the whole way up. Great challenge for climbers breaking into the grade, or warmup for harder stuff.

extremely well bolted (16 of them). fantastic pockets start to finish. my personal favorite route at sinks. mostly 5.9 with a few 5.10a moves. cruxy move over a bulge at the top.
