Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>


Easy climbing (sporty at one point...so don't be overly cavalier) on jugs leads to a bulge with small holds on nice rock. This is the crux. Some odd crablike climbing gets you back to the left and the chains of Running Woman.

Someone added a bolt up and right from the crux, so you can cross onto Division.


6 bolts, chain anchors.


This route is on the west face of the crag and located one route left of Division (5.12a).

This line shares the first bolt with Division and the first three bolts with Running Woman (.11a). Someone put in a two-bolt direct start of dubious quality for this route...do the original and don't get confused.

I tried this climb for the first time last week. Granted it was at the end of the day, and I had done several other 11's (including two laps on division) before.... I thought it was very solid for the grade. It felt much harder than division and dare I say felt harder to me than Isotoner Moaner. To each his own but this felt like the hardest 12a that I have tried up AF. I will speculate a little more on the grade when I go back fresh for the send.
