This route barely gets a star. The majority of the route is OK, even if a little grainy, but the non-crux top is just kinda bad- quite grainy (loose) and it's a hollow flake with dubious pro off of the ledge up there- the consequences would be unpleasant if you fell by no more mistake than trusting bad rock- which you kinda have to do.

On the East Face of Outhouse rock, find a rounded pillar/buttress on the right hand end.This route climbs the steep right-facing dihedral formed by the union of this buttress and the wall. It is a little dirtier than some other routes and grainy up top. Save for the top, the route is OK.


A standard rack of nuts and cams to 3 or 3.5"

I didn't find this route loose at all. The pro was good and it required every kind of technique from finger locks to chimney. For gear you can protect the opening moves with a #4. On the route bring doubles of Aliens, green through red, and single cams #.75-3.

Decent climbing, but the lowest quality of the three moderate cracks on this face. One star out of five. Jan 12, 2004
