Description 

This two pitch route starts about 75 feet right of Disappearing Man. A cramped corner system leads into a nice clean, but all too short, finger crack. Interesting moves on solid rock. The first bolt on Nine to Five had the interesting habit of disappearing from the route until was cemented in place by Alan a few years back. A good and well-protected route.

Eds. you can continue with a 2nd pitch with Disappearing Man, 5.10+.


Protection 

Six or seven draws and a rope.

Awesome warmup for other climbs in area. Well bolted and fun. Plus, we got booty....gotta love that.

This is a fun warm-up. If you plan on doing the second called Disappearing Man, 5.10d, bring a few small nuts. The first bolt is missing a hanger.

Fun climb, little bit of everything (jugs, finger crack, and face). Needs a few more climbers to clean up the last section.
