One of a handful of true must-do routes at Lost Wall, Booze and Broads is a great corner climb. If the strenuous boulder-problem start doesn't leave you out of breath, the stemming corner and roof traverse will.

Start at an overhang under the big corner. Pull difficult roof moves (a spotter and early-placed protection is really a good idea) into a hand crack and muscle your way up to a stance. Follow the right-facing corner to a big roof, then traverse right to a corner and up to the top.


Starts 15' left of Pop Quiz, just past trail marker #3. Rap from a tree at the top.


Mostly medium cams and tricams; build a gear anchor.

This is a must do! Nice little boulder problem to start it out too.

Does anyone remember the single rap bolt at the top of the dihedral? It was chopped about 5 years ago. Good thing, it was sketch.

I chopped it with the FA (Pappy Corbett) in the late 90s or 2000. The guides used it as part of a TR set-up for the hordes. That way, they didn't have to do the fun traverse finish.
