Good face and seam climbing to roof moves with thin face above. Interesting ending too.


This climb starts about 30 feet right of Finders Keepers and 30 feet left of Blood Book. Climb orange rick up seams to roof. Undercling right then turn roofs.


Bolts, anchors

This is a great route. Don't be fooled to think the crux is the roof... you might just be surprised. Very fun and must do for the area.

Loose hanger story. Jimbo is leading and clips the bolt at the lip as he starts into the crux. Half way through the crux move the nut and hanger fall off. He is now looking at a pretty big whipper that will probably hurt but he keeps going. That is why there are two nuts on the bolt at the lip.

2nd half of the story. After I finished the route I hauled up a wrench and replaced the hanger. EFR then leads the route and intentionally skips the clip at the roof.

When the hanger fell off I don't know who was more scared me or Erica who was thinking she was gonna get sucked thru the biner on the first bolt if I came off.

Tryptophandamonium is right and Parting Shot is on the left. Parting might be a bit of a bag at 5.11. Both are already posted up.

Hahahaha Jim funny story. I remember hearing about that. Poor Erica must have been wishing she had some concrete blocks handy.
