J.Bryan trying to onsight.


Start about 20 feet left of Wrestle with the Pig on the right-hand side of the cliff. Climb up past two bolts into a v-corner. Place gear and jam up to below a large roof. Veer right undr the roof and make a technical move out the roof and onto a steep slab. Teeter up the face to the anchor. Good route!


Five bolts and some small to medium gear will get you to a two-bolt anchor.

For a route that really isn't all that long, there's a lot of variety in this climb -- face climbing, hand jams, a balancy section, and a slab finish.

Superb route. Be careful on the roof traverse section as the rock is brittle.

I tried to onsight it. I had no idea what it was rated. I could not turn the corner and finally pulled on my runner. I thought it was just the one move which was hard for me. The rest of it seemed 5.7 with some 5.10 slab. I want to try it again next time I go back.

It is a tough onsight for sure. The crux holds are somewhat in-obvious, but fairly positive, if also fairly small. I dug this route. I honestly just love mixed routes.
