Travis just passing the hard part of The Itch.


The route starts in a groove with smearing and balancy moves. Eventually it moves to a crack higher up. This is a very fun and varied route.


This has no bolts, and gear would be sparse. It is usually done as a TR.


It is located just to the right of the bolted Gold Wall route.

Was trying to climb earlier this afternoon, since it looked like the rain was clearing up but had to leave early and was not able to get my anchor stuff down from the top of the itch route (too steep and slick, way too dangerous to be worth it). However, a decent chunk of my gear is up there (four locking carabiners, two orange quickdraws, and a blue sling), and I would really really appreciate it if it stayed there until I can go back and get it (I'll be doing that as soon as the rock dries). If anyone does take it down before I get there, please contact me at 208-920-3014. Thanks so much!
