Start on Doctor's Orders, and climb the first three bolts. Traverse left with two bolts for protection before doing the top of Straight Man.

There was an old route here with cold shuts that was long abandoned. It was refitted with new hardware and a bunch of cleaning!


Start on Doctor's Orders, the two short, easy routes with steep starts and slabby finishes.


11 bolts plus anchor.

This route only gets 1 star in the guidebook, but...I have been here numerous times with intermediate climbers this fall, and they all love this route. It is long, the crux is cool and near the top, and the climbing is fun. It still needs a bit of brushing in the crossover from Doctor's Orders but is a really enjoyable route. If you like moderate routes, get on it. Thanks to Mike for this one!
