Description 

This is a GREAT route! It gets plenty of sun in the morning. The holds are fairly large and straightforward, not many small crimpers or side pulls. Beware the rubble, I dislodged a few pebbles on this route last month. The crux occurs near the top, between bolts 7 & 9. Stay off the face to the right, and reach high with a left hand for a decent horn. Use hand jams in an obvious horizontal crack just past the crux to attain the summit. Take your time at the top and enjoy the view!


Location 

Once you get to the crag, go uphill past 15 or so routes. Enterprise is just to the left of Phase Dance, a 12a with 2 roofs that lies almost in the corner of a prominent alcove.


Protection 

10 bolts with coldshut hangers on the way up, a 2-bolt anchor.

Great Climb. Be careful of some loose rock near the top.

I climbed this on 3/25 and pulled off one of the holds along with a big chunk of rock surrounding it, which made things exciting for my belayer. I was a bit amped up on adrenaline afterward and can't say which bolt I'd passed before it happened but I think it was between the 4th and 5th. I doubt the grade of the route is affected but would be curious to see if anyone else notices the hold's absence.

I agree with Mr. Opland here. Enterprise is a tad easier and definitely better than its neighbor, The Opportunist. Nice long route.

Climbed this route yesterday - the anchors are very worn and are in need of replacement.

The anchor bolts themselves are in good condition. The very worn coldshuts were replaced with a hanger and chains on 10-1-11.
