BETA PHOTO: Donkey Show


A good technical route. Slabby climbing with tricky moves in between good holds and rests. May protect with gear on lower part to avoid groundfall. [Another bolt was added recently by unknown parties and groundfall is no longer a major risk]


This route is located on the far left side of the Chilly Willy area. Starts on angled west-face of the rock.


[5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. Cams are no longer necessary, as a 5th bolt was added by unknown persons in early 2008. See comment below.]

A green, yellow, and red Aliens are useful to supplement the lack of bolts. A stick clip is good at the bottom considering you are pulling the crux before you are clipped in.

According to several LA climbers a bolt was recently added to the start of Donkey Show. I didn't add it, and am not going to chop it or anything, but I sure would like to know who added it. Cam
