  • Description 

    Roughly follows a left leaning dike up the face. Shares the first 4 bolts with "Cheetos and Everclear". Sustained at the 5.8/5.9 level. Mostly small knobs, some friction, and a couple of hand crack moves.


    Starts on a ledge about 70 feet above the ground just left of "Holdless Horror". Can be accessed up the "Holdless Horror" gulley, or to the left up a seam and crack/flake. Two 70m ropes will get you to the ground, two 60m ropes will get you to the 3rd class slab/seam 20 feet off the ground


    11 draws. Two bolts with chains. Optional small hand sized cam can be placed in the crack half way up where the bolts are a "little" wider spaced. 1-2" cams for the belay at the ledge.

    Fun climb,knobs, edges, and a little smearing with a couple crack moves in the middle (1-1.5"). Not sport bolted but also not R.

    "...not sport bolted but also not R" - agreed. The crux for me was finding the next bolt.

    Awesome climb! Great holds and feet - this dome is much more textured than other places in Tuolumne. With a few pieces of gear I think the route one of the better/best protected in the area.

    Thought the rating was a little inflated (again, for the area).
