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 to another bolt and a set of rap anchors. To descend, rap the route.

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.
