Ben on Rabbit's Feat.


Farthest climb to the right. Belay from ledge to left of climb with a 60M rope. Well protected climb with good moves that gets harder as you climb higher. Crux is just below the top bolt. Named for the mangled rabbits foot found on the climb by Ben Burnam while he bolted the climb.


10 bolts - chain anchors

This picture and description makes me feel a lot better about myself. I thought it was the baby jr gets spanked. I came here from georgia and it made me think ratings were much stiffer here. ThanksAndrew Robbins

Requires a 60m rope. Be sure to knot the ends of your rope while repelling. Slab climbing.

This is more like 5.6 or a light 5.7.NO WAY IS THIS 5.8+. moves are straight forward and rather simple.

ER, Dale, are you talking about the same route? Farthest to the right with the pretty sketchy, super rounded slopers at the top? There is NO way I would recommend this to a 5.6 leader. Try the route again and compare it to OK Corral and some of the other routes on Trad.

This is not a safe place for feet, first the rabbit's foot, then mine. When I climbed this a few years ago I mistakely thought I was on baby jr. gets spanked, an easy 5.6, because that was the climb furthest to the right according to my guide book. The climb got significantly harder about 2/3 of the way up. There were no good holds above and downclimbing seemed too difficult. At 5'9" I was almost able to clip into the next bolt on my tippy toes, but alas I fell about 25 feet and broke my foot. This section should earn this climb a 5.9 rating.

Poorly placed bolts in my opinion. Ledge fall is possible more than once.

Dale is talking about a different route. this route is every bit as thought-provoking and challenging as 5.8 should be. don't read this wrong-route, all-caps, sandbag nonsense and jump on this line thinking its a breeze.
