Starts about five feet right of When the Levee Breaks. Work up and right to a bulge. Pull the crux on solid holds and continue up and right. Near the top of a right-slanting crack head straight up through a secondary crux to reach the anchor. While Bourbon Street feels a little easy for the grade, it incorporates a variety of technique; this one is fun all the way to the top! Rappel to descend.

A gem for sure.

Certainly one of the best 5.9 routes in the area. Lot's of fun and variety. I think the moves past the final bolt are the crux of the climb.

Fun! One of the best few 5.9s at HVP. From the ground it looks like a steep crux at 3rd bolt then a cruise to the top, but it is surprisingly sustained (but not enduro) from #3 onward. Still maybe a little softer than average for HVP 5.9?
