Susan discovering the key to being a Slacker (5.10...


Starts just left of Real Men of Genius and climbs a right-slanting ramp to fingery moves (crux) past the third bolt. Higher positive edges lead up and left to a sloping bowl and then back up and right to a finish on grainy rock.

Enjoyable moves on this route, but with a brief crux and somewhat gritty rock up high it doesn't merit more than two stars.


6 bolts, chain anchors

Great crux that gets you thinking with a reachy move afterwards.

Some holds have broken off at the crux making this a little more reachy; the grade remains unaffected.

Strange beginning and an awfully funny crux. with some very slippery feet. Damn hard for 10c.

Found the reachy-ness to be very committing. Difficult to say the least. Very good route though.
