Me climbing Character Witness, 5.11a. Love this c...


Climb the bulging wall to a short layback on a small edge. Go left to a pocket, then back right to the right side of a flake (crux). Layback the flake into a shallow slot. Continue up the slot and a seam to a jug. The ring anchors are several moves higher.


Continue up the Home Alone trail past the cave and right-facing corner. Scramble up and over two boulders to a U-shaped amphitheater. From left to right, Character Witness is the second route on the left (north-facing) wall of the amphitheater. (The others are Always Keep it Loaded, .12a; Plea Bargain, .10a; Freaks and Phonies, .10b; and Soup Sandwich, 9.


6 bolts; 7 if you clip an anchor bolt on Character Witness and angle right for several 9 or 9+ moves to the Plea Bargain anchors. Lower from CW's rings or the fixed wire-gates on Plea Bargain.

Don't get sucked left to the anchors for the 12a. Keep it going up and right for one more clip!
