Up on Rat Stew.


Nice moderate sport route. Climb up the low-angle slabby start on balancy little knobs. Then climb up the steeper upper wall using good big holds.


This is the farthest route to the right on the wall.


Bolts; bolted anchors at the top.

This was my favorite lead at the Bruise Brothers area; maybe a little soft for a 10, but still pretty sustained most of the way. Rain was coming down steady, so the moves to the first bolt were soaking wet, but after that it was dry all the way. Hats off to my belayer for standing there getting soaked while I led it (well not quite soaked, he was wearing a poncho)!

Fantastic climb. Had a little bit of everything, a slab on the knobs, a big juggy big move section, top section you get pumped, and the last bolt before the anchors I just sloped off the first time. Kind of surprising. Great stuff.

Because I'm a coward I opted to let my buddy lead this route & then I top roped it. It was a great climb. Doable as a lead. Decent holds & places to rest. Liked it a lot. I'll lead it next time.

My first 5.10 at the Red...loved every struggling minute of it.
