This is a three bolt route on the narrow formation to the left of Spitwad. The crux is at the start. Small stoppers protect the initial moves. I placed three to give plenty of backup. After that, it rolls over and all you'll need are quickdraws. It's a moderately pleasant little climb.


Quick draws and small wires. The bolts are new from ASCA in 2015.

A decent route on light-colored grain worth doing while waiting for the more varnished routes nearby to open up. May 20, 2004

Old Bolts.

The following is a comment on the 4 bolt route to the left of this: Nice route, but also has old bolts with rusty hangers. Vogel route # 509 ??Felt more like 5.9, not 5.10cAnchor is .6 - 1.6" cams. Nov 8, 2005

Bouldery start with a bit of a pumpy stance (worse than it looks like it'll be from the ground) to place the initial gear from about 5' off the ground. The crux follows soon after, then smear your way up the grainy slab past three bolts. Walk off to the right to get to the rap anchors for Young Lust or Double Dogleg. A worthy tick if you're in the area and have done the others (or they're busy with other parties) but not the reason you go climb in Rock Garden Valley. Apr 11, 2010
