There is no benefit of the doubt to be given here, either you can start this route or you can't.

A powerful, yet cautious, bouldery beginning marks the crux of this route. Blowing the second, difficult clip could get ugly. Proper body position and strong tendons get you going, find the few remaining hidden crimps and continue up through smoother, more flowing terrain.

Whats bad? A crumbly and potentially dangerous start.
Whats good? Solid varnished edges, good pockets, and great movement.


Benefit of the Doubt is one of the last bolted routes on the south facing wall. It is the next route left of Where Ego's Dare


Four bolts to a difficult to mash, bend, break, or steal, two-bolt anchor.
