Description 

This climbs gets its name from being five feet from the highway and 115 feet tall. This is a WI4 climb that is pretty wide so multiple parties can climb it at the same time. This route can also offer mixed conditions. Beware of cars passing right next to you.


Location 

Roadside Attraction is a mile and a half past the weigh station on the right. There is a nice parking area straight across from this climb to park at.


Protection 

Bring a few ice screws. Alders exist at the top of the climb, but bring v-thread material just in case you can't find a good alder. Rumor has it that a bolted anchor was put in this season 06-07.

I debate the FA you posted...I think it's Sassara, but who cares at this point? I was soloing it in 1980 and Charlie drove by and told me he had done it years earlier. To be honest, I was a weenie back then and used the Robbins prusik method.
