Description 

Face climb to the right of Tombstone Terror. One of the best sport routes at the leap. Clean, steep and well protected. If follows a series of flakes, small edges and pinches up a nearly overhanging white wall. This route's FA was originally done with a couple bolts and pins. Yikes!

Definitely a great route with unique moves. Well protected and fun!

Used to be 11a in the old white guide, could be harder if you are shorter...

Wow! Powerful moves on steep rock. .11a? I bet this would be rated harder at some climbing areas...

And at some places it would be rated easier.

Yeah right. This thing isn't .10 anywhere in the country.

Either harder than .11a or very sustained .11a (or both), I can't tell. Either way, this is has got to be the finest face climb that I've done at the leap.

First 20 feet are unprotected with a bad landing. Once you clip the first bolt, the business starts and continues until you start dike hopping 3/4 of the way up the route. Crux is everything in between and involves some powerful flake pulling, mantling, liebacking and most importantly... lots of endurance.

Boothill is the graveyard in Tombstone AZ, named such because Tombstone was a town 'where men died with their boots on.'
