Butt shot of Jay leading, July 2005. Thanks Rhoad...


Locate the next bolted route right of Self Mutilation. The climb is identified by thin cracks up a steep wall.

Perhaps the best bolted 5.11 in Wisconsin, Dick and Jeanie features a steep start and a bouldery crux. The climbing remains asthetic despite its short height. A popular project route, given its straightforward moves and beautiful position.

I noticed there is a bolt above the anchor...anyone have any info on the upper section? Are there more bolts, mixed pro, etc?

I believe the guys who put these up came back and lowered the anchors on several of these routes. I think because the rock is a little more sugary up top.

This route is highly temperature and humidity dependent. First time I was on it was about 90F with high humidity, and we thought it was mid-5.12 for sure, very hard crux and the crimp out right was completely useless to make the crux move. Two weeks later, 20 degrees cooler and breezy, and it felt 11b. Fun route.

Great route up some amazing features. Felt like a mid 5.12 until I figured out the beta. The bottom is super powerful to a technical crux. Bolts are place terribly. Sketchy to clip the second bolt.

"Perhaps the best bolted 5.11 in Wisconsin."

Really? A two-star route? How about the four-star Red Recollection at Qual Wall? Or the three-star Now or Never? Or the lovely, long Schizophrenia? Arguably this is the best bolted 5.11 at Neceedah, but not in Wisconsin.

I liked this climb, but the breathless hyperbole is over the top.
