Dirt roads reopened as of June 2014 MORE INFO >>>


Climb onto the slab (#4 Friend or #3.5 Camalot), and continue up the face on sustained edges through a line of four bolts. The crux is at the bulge. This route might seem a bit hard for the grade... unless you're tall.


This route is the rightmost line of bolts on the Old Folks Wall. Descend using the anchors atop "Thriller."


Pro as mentioned above, quickdraws for four bolts, and cams for the top anchor (#0.75, #1, & #2 Camalots).

If you're 5'9" or taller, the route may instead seem a bit easy for the grade....

I'm 5'9" or taller, but I feel the grade is pretty honest. But then I'm kind of a weeny. You should add your opinion to the consensus rating, and see what we come up with. I think it's the best way to confirm the rating.
