Hobbs on Last Call for Alcohol


This climb takes the obvious left-slanting handcrack in the middle of the east face. Good jams, good gear and an abundance of helpful face holds make this an enjoyable venture.


Gear to 2.5", chain anchors

Very fun? I disagree. There is nothing wrong with this route, but it is short and far too many huge face holds to merit the 5.8 rating. Its not thoughtful climbing at all, but if you are looking for an easy gear climb, maybe as a newish ( not brand new, as placement in the beginning arent super obvious) leader this is a good choice.

I wouldn't call it "very fun", but definitely an enjoyable route which takes plenty of gear, has great stances for placing and ends at a bolted anchor. Sure it's no Double Cross, but what more can you ask from a beginner trad line at a short little sport climbing cliff.

...I wonder what they'd rate this thing at J tree...
