Me on Industrial Bliss 10a****

Open, with restrictions: Park on the street MORE INFO >>>


A manufactured climb that route developer created into a very high quality climb that I consider the best 5.10 at the crag. Climb goes straight up, passing the very left side of a small roof to all positive holds. Steepens up at top right before the anchors.


10 feet right of Mass Production, 5th route to the right and starts on top of a small rock. Rappel or lower down


8 botls to double ring anchors

The best of the bunch here with intriguing sequences on positive pockets and a little bit of a pump thrown in for good measure.

I can't fathom why this is a 4 star rating... It feels like a gym climb, the beta is revealed just by looking at it since its a "chipped" route. Very pumpy like a gym, ok moves but deep holds like a 5.8 or 5.9. I guess this would be like an indoor 5.10a. Very different for an outdoor climb.

Couldn't find the alleged intriguing sequences--climbs like a ladder. Straight on, pocket to pocket.

Steep and pumpy toward the end--if 10a is your limit, this is not a gimme for that grade.

Easy and pumpy. Outdoor gym climb.

fun and sustained with a touch of pump towards the end.

Fun route, easy holds but provides a good pump. Made me realize what a fat tub-o-lard I am. This wall is totally manufactured and they did a good job at it. Thanks for the hard work.
