This route is the best one on this wall. It starts in the middle of the wall and climbs thru a series of underclings, side pulls and crossovers to the obvious left leaning crack which is followed to the anchors.

.....OH??? and I almost forgot... There is a HAND JAM!!!!


5 bolts, Metolius rap hanger anchors

The hand jam is key, but sport climbers don't know how to hand jam!

So.... that why so many guys get spit off the top? They don't know how to HAND JAM!

but did Chris just say that I forgot how to jam.. or that I just forgot to mention the jam? And why do I feel so dirty when he said "sport climber"?

I know it's not a 4* route for the area, but it is a 4* for the wall.

Steep and in your face to the 3rd bolt (good technique helps) then get the hand jam and turn the lip to much easier balance climbing and the anchors. This route is lots of fun with a great variety of moves throughout.

Glad people seem to like my route. It was my first bolting job back in February of 1997...Kevin Thaw did the second ascent and confirmed it at 11d. I was stoked that he enjoyed it...And yep, the hand jam was the key...It thought the line was cool because its pretty in your face from the moment you step off the ground...
