2016 Seasonal Raptor Closures - Eagle Rock remains closed MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This bolted line lies immediately left of Little John's Big Stick. Unlike the other lines at this cliff, this one is outfitted with rust-red bolt hangers. Climb up the route on decent feet and a lot of side-pulls and stems on the slabby face for 50' until you pop right under a small bulge. This will "squeeze" you in close to LJBS for a move before you sep back left through another steep bulge to another bolt and a set of rap anchors. To descend, rap the route.

The steep bulges look intimidating from the ground, but are filled with jugs. The crux is actually the lower angled lower section.

Protection 

A set of draws (8?) to a bolted anchor.

This was a great route. Very straightforward and fun. Pleasant and unimposing; the clipping stances are solid.

A good variety of climbing, and though the top looks chossy, it actually climbs very well.

The slab down low is fun and thought provoking. The top felt like a gym climb with how much chalk was on all the holds.
