Over Exposure climbs to a subpeak of Photographer's on its southwest side. From the parking area, walk around the base of Photographer's Peak to the gully that separates it from Aquarium Rock. Over Exposure starts where a detached rock is a few feet from the main rock.

Stem up the first part between the main rock and the smaller rock behind it. Then face climb through 4? bolts to the top. Trend to the right near the end of the pitch. Fixed anchors and a one-rope rappel are available.


bolted (4 or 5 bolts?)


This route was first climbed by Paul Muehl. All the original bolts were drilled while on lead. It's too bad that who ever replaced the bolts had to leave one of the bolts a spinner. You would think if someone was repairing a route he would make sure that all the bolts are solid and not spinners. But the route is good. Aug 7, 2002
Actually, this route was put up by Howard Doyle. I did the second ascent and made the comment that I thought it was over exposed. Howard liked the name. Paul did what I believe was the third ascent and agreed that it was a bit run out. With Howard's permission, Paul added the 4th bold, making it much less exposed, but much safer. It's one of my favorite routes for the grade. May 20, 2009
