Doomsday Brithday, 5.8.
Private land MORE INFO >>>


Doomsday Birthday offers great adventure climbing in a very secluded setting.

Traverse left under a large roof using the wide crack, hidden edges, and large feet until you reach the end of the roof. Then follow an easy corner to the top of the wall until you reach the only solid tree from which you belay and rappel.

This route was put up on my birthday, May 21, 2011. This also happens to be the day Harold Camping predicted that the world would end. Hence the name.

Based on the loose rock and lichen, we are claiming a first ascent. However, if anyone knows the history of this route, please let us know and we will correct the name and give credit to the real FA party.


This is down the hill from Battle With a Bush. Look for a large roof with a wide, left-leaning crack.


This route protects very easily. Bring gear up to a #4 Camalot. There is no fixed gear at the top. Simply belay and rappel from a tree.
