Stein having way too much fun on Culture Shock.

Open, with restrictions: Park on the street MORE INFO >>>


Route is currently closed due to loose rock!

Tricky footwork, body tension and good hold selection will get you through the first 4 bolts. The climbing eases up with a few harder sections on the rest of the climb. A crimp crux before the mid anchor can be challenging if pumped. Keep going past the anchors out left and finish all the way at the top of the cliff.


This is located left of Choss Revolution. A few routes to the left of the popular Trundle Trophy and Flexercise.


17 bolts to ring anchors. There is also a midway ring anchor to the left of the route.

Unfortunately, the MP app still doesn't show Wizards comments about the route being "Closed" Perhaps a Red "Access Issue" note might be appropriate until this route and Double Agent are cleaned up and missing bolts added from the recent granite explosion?

There is really not much to warn of the conditions above and out of sight.

That being said--- Wizard, are you doing the maintenance? And if so do you need any assistance or fundage? This climb kicks ASS... and would love to see it restored and would offer help in a feasible way.

Flakes on the route are extremely sketchy and loose. Be careful. R rating is only for the short section of flakes midway up

Not sure when I'll get to fixing this. Have a lot of other projects keeping me busy. If anyone wants to help, message me. Is the red tag on the first bolt not there anymore?
