About 40' left of The Ground Doesn't Lie, climb a dirty/broken chimney/dihedral to a ledge, then go up the face following the three bolts present. There is a two bolt anchor on the face where it finally gets interesting.


This is in the Overhang area, left of The Ground Doesn't Lie.


Three bolts, but a large nut protects the run out before the first bolt, which is about 20' off the deck.

Both my friend and I climbed this route today (8-8-09) and it was not a fun route in our opinions. The run out to the first bolt is long and unnecessary. The run out between bolts 1 & 2 is also long. The route felt more like an 8 instead of a 7. The line was full of loose rock and debris. We will not waste our time on this one again....

Climbed with Tom... If you go to the right of the last bolt (and anchors for that matter), it's VERY brittle and loose. May not be safe.
I ended up having to go left both times to feel comfortable with holds that didn't move.

Easy to protect runout below bolt 1, and between b1 and b2 if you want, with nuts or cams. Cracks are still a bit dirty, but not a problem. Some of the potential holds on right of upper section do feel a bit weak, but plenty of choices. Maybe the loose ones are gone now.

A must do... on trad. Bolts should be chopped.
Gear up to #4 Metolius. Bomber nuts! 5.7.

Fun little route. I wouldn't recommend this to a 5.7 leader without rock gear to protect the run-out.

I will agree with the previous comment here. Not a great beginner lead (and frankly not a great lead in general) because of the run-outs. If you have gear, probably a nice a little climb with some fun crack holds and good jugs.

True to grade (5.7), but the runouts are just a little over the top. Not for a beginner leader or a 5.7/5.8 leader. Climbs at 5.7 once you get over the silly amount of runout to b1 and between b1 and b2.
