Dean Hoffman taking a cruise on Redball.


In the world of Hobo's, a Redball is a fast train to the next jungle. However, in this jungle Redball is 45' of near perfect stone and holds, at a slightly overhanging angle. The crux comes early and may make this train hard to catch for some.


This line is hard to miss as you get to the wall. Look for a beautiful "pillar" formation with a stunning tan streak that splits the first 20'. Redball is on the right hand side of this streak.


4 bolts, 2 bolt fixed biner anchor

This route had the hardest moves of any I did at the Jungle. It is rated 11- but it just didn't fit me at all and I worked the moves on TR after the redpoint. This thing is on you from start to finish.

Ha, I do have a tendency to search out the tall boy lines. However, I climb with some powerful "shorties" and I am always amazed. Shorty beta stays left, avoiding the curved finger bucket out right...

11c is the ranking I give. Bold move to clip the second bolt. Wonderfully set route.

Chipped foot? The last time I was on this a month back or so I noted that the two crux crimps are changing in size. One felt bigger, and the other smaller than last summer. Unfortunately one or the other gets used as a foothold as you move past the crux.

"Redball Biscuits"
Redball links with upper half of High Hanging Biscuits pretty reasonably (5.6) for a longer variation. Extend the anchor and next bolt with runners and continue with HHB.
