The boulder start on Rooster Booster on a cold dri...


The best 'easy' route in the area, and a great if not a tad long warm-up. Be sure to have a 70m rope for this one.

A strenuous start leads to a long, varied, enjoyable climb through pockets, thin edges, overhangs, and even some crack climbing up to the anchors. No distinct crux, but several spots that will make you pause and think -- and the length could test your endurance.

This is the better of the two 5's (French) in the area, though the other is easier at 5.9 (All the King's Horses).


This route lies 1 route left of the point where the trail from below hits the North Face, and just right of Poser's Lonely Reunion.


14 or 15 bolts + 2 bolt fixed chain anchor. Top rope-able with a long rope.

Perfectly safe with a 60m, we had a few meters left.
