Home of the classic Scream Cheese
, The west face of Anteater
will be a hard one to miss. It's striking featured face and amusement park style line to its base will make your arrival at the Anteater
Climbing here varies from face to crack to slab to everything in-between. A set of about 8-10 draws, a few long runners and a single set of gear should do the trick. Routes here aren't very tall and a 60 meter rope will just make it.
Lucky for most, there are more than two routes here, while waiting to be called, try your luck on Holding Out for a Hero
or the highly aesthetic Smurf Smasher
Descend: Reduce wear and tear by rappeling from anchors on top.
Morning shade / Afternoon sun.
From Parking Lot Rock, take the fork that branches right, follow signs past Morning Glory and skirt along the trail to the base.

This climb goes up the prow next to Swiss Cheese. It has a fun mix of jugs, face, and slab climbing. There is a nocticeable runout half way up the route, but the holds are good. Rap the route from chains on top. Probably one of the best 5.9 sport climbs at the City....[more] Browse More Classics in ID
