Description

Boulder up the start until possible to clip the first bolt then work your way left to clip a second bolt. Good footwork will make the somewhat crimpy moves to the third bolt easier. Climb past a final bolt and finish up with easier moves via a short hand crack onto a ledge with anchors.

A short route that is decent enough worth doing if in the area. Originally there was another fixed pin before the first bolt - it may be possible to get a small (0.5")piece in if necessary. Additionally one can get a 2.5" piece in the crack section at the top if needed.

The hard moves and the bulk of the climbing are well protected and it has an anchor- so I'd call it a sport route. Two stars out of five.

Location

On the southwest face of Cyclops Rock about 40' right of the start for The Official Route of the 1984 Olympics. The climb is easily identified as starting out of a recessed area of rock that overhangs slightly.

Protection

4 bolts, bolted anchor/rap

That's about what it felt like to me... I don't frequently onsight 5.11 and this one came relatively easily. Then several weeks later, feeling stronger, I had a very poor showing on Jane's Addiction :) Jan 8, 2003

I'd give this a 11a rating mainly for the first bolt was a committing clip. If you stick clip the first bolt and continue on then I can see it being 10d or softer since your taking away the first major pump of the route. Feb 17, 2015
