Description

This climb is the centerpiece of Sports Challenge Rock and is located two climbs to the right of Clean and Jerk just right of a large pine tree.

Boulder up a short face to a sloping ledge and from there make a series of technical, strenuous moves up an overhanging wall past a flake to a horizontal. From there the climb continues up steep rock past more horizontals to the top.

Usually (and easily) top-roped this climb is a great climb to pump out on, as it is a far cry from the usual slab paddling found in the Park. This climb makes a great lead/workout climb for those so inclined. A great climb on a great wall, the only thing it lacks is distance from the crowds.

* Some good footage of John Bachar soloing the route back in the 1980's - youtube.com/watch?v=03udLvt…

Protection

A good selection of wires and cams to 3" will see you through to the top. Pro is good, but strenuous to place (especially onsight).
