1st crux.

  • Description 

    This ascends a great thin face left through the black band crux to good edges. Traverse back right, .12a, and straight to the anchors.

    "One of the Gardens most difficult routes." -Ric Geiman


    This lies between Skline Pig and Beat Me Up Scotty.


    7-8 bolts.

    Route name confusion is a result of a couple of old guidebooks that got the names wrong. This one is Anarchy. FA in 1994. Felt like mid-12 to me back in the day.

    This was the last route on all of Kindergarten that I had to do, and I found it to be very very good! I'm kind of sad I put it off so long! The crux is undoubtedly through the black band (at bolt 3) and slowly eases up for a tad then one more crux hits as your feet deteriorate (literally crumble...). A must do do for the grade and definitely one of the harder climbs in the Garden. I might give it 12b/c. Still hard and fun on great(ish) rock (Garden Standards). Thanks, Ric, for the climb!
