A really fun moderate route with one short section of 5.9 climbing. The entire route climbs highly featured and unique granite. Folks climbing at or near the grade should be aware that there is a 20 foot runout a bolt or two after the crux. A fall here would see you crashing hard onto slabby and off-vertical rock below. Nonetheless, this runout is on 5.0 and highly featured (and low angle) climbing and thus I don't think the route warrants an 'R' rating.

The Betty Ford Route shares its anchor with Daily Prayer (Betty Ford was the original route and Daily Prayer was set to merge into the already existing route).


Betty Ford is the furthest route to the right on the Detox Wall. It is slightly uphill and around to the right of Daily Prayer.


Many bolts (at least 9) to a two bolt anchor. Please toprope off of your own gear.
