Start near the left end of the corridor. Chimney up about 20 feet on cruddy rock and then step out onto the difficult looking face. The climbing is easier than it appears thanks to a nice sequence of holds. This is the best of the 3 routes on Southern Blonde.


8 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap

Great start to sustained climbing. Some holds have come off this climb as it definitely harder than 10a now.

Finally got around to doing this climb. Great climbing and it's easier than it looks.

I'm with Josh on this one. Having done a great many 10a's in the Hills and flashing all the 10b's I've tried--like My Little Lab Rat and others--the crux on this one flummoxed me! I finally worked it out, but it's WAY harder than any of the 10a's I've done. Could have been a heavy gravity day for me, so who knows, but cranking past that third bolt is tough. I'm calling it 10b/c.
