this route climbs a crack just to the right of an unbolted face. climb the crack until you reach a roof. the crack then becomes offwidth. this is the crux. it's possible to move right and climb an unprotected face.


Crack takes good gear until the roof. need a large piece for the offwidth. anchor takes good gear.

Where is this route in relationship to Progressive Lizard? Apr 5, 2003
The route is to the left of Progressive Lizard and Chicken Lizard. It's a really obvious route. The bottom section is a right-facing corner with a flake sticking out of it, and the top section is an offwidth crack passing the left side of a small roof. Dec 16, 2003

This climb appears to be that bearing the name Lizard Robbins in the Vogel Guide. The climb is not that bad. Feels hard as a downclimb due to blind feet, but was OK climbing up. Jan 12, 2004

Why do I offer to ever lead off-widths? Route protected pretty well, but my o.w. technique got me thinking that this 5.5 was more like an .8 - which I most certainly am not suggesting that it is... Oct 18, 2009
