Description

There are 4 bolted routes on the side of Cavity rock facing Toy Boat. This is the 2nd from left as facing the wall. Climb a devious face to an overhang. Crank the overhang and figure out how to reach the bomber crack above. Probably more difficult for us short people. One more tricky move after the crack. Anchors on top. This is quite the cool short climb. It has a number of cruxes which are all overcome by using a different style.

Protection

7 or 8 draws including anchors

Great route realy fun crux. It felt 5.10 c ish but I just think that was because it was 35 degrees out when I climbed it. Jan 24, 2012

There are only 5 bolts on this route, not 7-8. Bring 7 however so you can clip the anchors. The bolts are just close enough together to keep it safe, but there is potential for hitting one of 2-3 ledges on the route if you fall. Sep 8, 2008

I don't know how it could compare to anything in Eldo, but this is a fun little climb for sure. Jul 9, 2007
About as hard as "Green Spur" 5.9 in Eldo, easier than "Valdez Overhang" 5.9 across the road and the same as "Lead Fillings" 5.9 just around the corner. Neat moves but real short. Nov 17, 2005

Good sustained route that packs a lot of varied climbing into a short package. I thought the crux was honest 10a - felt comparable to 10a routes at Eldo or Little Cottonwood. May 30, 2005
