Smearing up Bad Lizards with a full dam in the bac...
Cross Barker Dam to Rat Rock; drop off the left side (west)and walk around the formation for about a hundred feet and up a slab. Look for bolts following a vertical, unobtrusive dike to the left of a upward, left sweeping crack system (Rat Ledge). Climb the dike to an overhang with a bolt. Surmount the overhang and proceed up and right by three more bolts to the top. No rap bolts. Downclimb to your left (north).

Decent climbing in a novel location, but this is certainly no Josh classic. Two stars out of five (mainly for the ambiance of the area).

I'm going to disagree. We did this route yesterday and thought it was great. There were three distinct cruxes plus enjoyable climbing in between. After I led it, we switched leads and did it again. I was surprised it wasn't in the database. So I put it in yesterday.

I really enjoyed this route and thought the beginning crux and the higher traversing crux and the end to be very cool! It is great that it has been rebolted. I like that one of the old bolts was left midway up to help you see the difference.

I'm in agreement with Woody. This is a very nice route. Lots of fun, in a great location. Vogel made some disparaging comments in his guides about Bad Lizards, but Jenson and Smith established a fine route here.
