Climb the middle of the face up to the ledge. Head straight up from here to the crux, or take the roof (red) to the right for a fun variation. This is good face climbing.


Two bolts on top of the wall.

The first half of this route is a walk up. There is one kind of awkward move getting onto the chest high lip that sticks out midway up the climb. The remaining six to ten feet are steep, but there are fairly big holds.

I agree - 2/3 of this route is a scramble. The crux move is a little stout, but that's about all there is. If a route's rating is that of its hardest move, this is a 9+. If a route's rating were the average of all its moves, this one's a 6.

This route is AWESOME!!! One of my favorites. There is a 2 bolt anchor on top which is accessed by walking farther along the trail to a scramble. Mak sure your slings extend far enough off the end of the rock or you will trash your rope. The right side of the rock(closest to the trail) is probably 5.9-5.9+. The left side is a scramble at first, but then you move over to the 5.9.

Definitely a one move route, but that one move was interesting with a couple of different solutions. A good route if you are doing others in the area but not one to visit Grocery Store Wall specifically for.

My family loves this route. Days that we feel like pushing it we do Blood, other days we do Caramel. The best part is that the camp area is huge. My two year old runs the camp like it is home away from home.
