Bucket Brigade.


This is a good warm-up or a good lead for the fledgling leader who is climbing 5.9. It has steep climbing with great holds the whole way. Scramble up to the ledge and climb up a bit to the first bolt. Then follow 3 more bolts up the steep face. Go right at the 4th bolt to a small alcove rest, and then punch it to the anchors.


This is located just up the hill from Storm Jumper, look for the climb that starts above the ledge.


4 bolts, chains.

This might get the award for the most overhung 5.9 around.

Getting to the high first bolt isn't difficult, but I would be apprehensive of sending a new 5.9 leader up this.

Agree that 5.9 leaders should stick clip the first bolt.

Really fun. Feels like a gym route.
