Description 

The crux is the beginning of the climb. The first three bolts are pumper. The rock is sharp and loose but will clean up as it gets climbed on more. Off balance moves at the overhang make this climb fun.

At the fifth bolt stay left; another line, the multi-pitch Sunday School Arete, branches right at this point.


Location 

This route is the sixth line from the corner to the left.


Protection 

10 bolts and 2 chains for the anchors. Helps to use a few longer draws on this route.

Red-pointed this route about a year ago before it had gotten remotely "cleaned up." It took me forever to figure out the crux, which involves solid but scary crimpers. Fun, fun route that should be climbed more often.

The first 3 bolts are fun, tough, and pumpy. The rest was pretty boring. Should have been left as a 30 or 40 foot climb and just stopped after the fun part. Longer draws are almost a must. I had so much drag that I felt like I was doing squats while pulling the rope up.

If you stay right at the fifth bolt, there is a link-up to a an unknown multi-pitch traverse that puts you more on the south side of upper job-site, walk off/down to where the other multi's end. The climbing above is very chossy Tillite that you can't crank on, tread lightly.

The "unknown" is a seven-pitch Jim Knight choss-fest named Sunday School Arete.

I really liked the moves on the start of this route but the rest was pretty much a chossy mess.

This is a fun climb. A key crimp disintegrated between the 3rd and 4th bolt sending me for a ride. However, the sequence is all there. The second time was a charm. Move quick through the start. After the forth bolt the route is a staircase.
