Three bolts up the center of Herman Rock define this route. Don't be misled by its appearance as it's a good deal more difficult than it looks.


3 bolts, bolted anchor/rap (all 3/8")

Woody, assuming this is that climb I led the other day (I could not find it in Randys guide or I would have beat you to the post) I am going to have to stick with the 5.9+ rating. It is all there. Just takes a little thinking and it was the last climb of the day after a relatively difficult crack that you had led.................5.9+ scratches at 5.10a and I could see where one might feel that difficulty. But not 5.10b............don't shoot me now please..............or you will be out of a crazy partner like yourself................(But no where near as crazy of course) Dec 24, 2004

Confusion! Three bolts is what I said. I must have checked something by mistake. I did forget the runout after the third bolt. Locker you devil, trying to suck someone in with that 5.9+. Dec 25, 2004

Very under-appreciated route. Looks like it almost never gets climbed, judging from the lack of a trail to it from the main trail, and lack of chalk. This is the second time I've climbed it, and would do it gladly a couple more times. It's tricky, and definitely runout at the top on less-than-easy terrain. Apr 23, 2018
