The rightmost bolted route on the Wall of Justice. Follow the bolts up to the large roof (it's easier than it looks!), and pull over it on good holds to the anchors. May be more difficult if you're shorter.


3 quickdraws and something for the anchor are all you need.

This is a one-move wonder. There is just one hard pull to surmount the bulge. Everything else is extremely easy.

Agree with Aaron! You can even bypass the bulge by clipping the 3rd bolt, then moving right if you don't want to pull the bulge. Fun & easier than "L.A. Law." I'd suggest swapping the grades on them.

Quite fun. The 3rd clip looks reachy, but really isn't that bad. However, I climbed this route with someone who was....well, lets just say vertically challenged and they had some difficulty.

's okay. you can go left, or right (a bit harder) around the arete.

The rating given by Chris Duelen may be for Countersuit, a face climb to the right of Lawsuit rated 5.9 by Hubbel that uses the same anchors.
