This is the rightmost route Underworld Rock, which begins just uphill of the large crack system that leads up to the roof known as the Underpass (5.11a).

Climb up the slab to the first bolt, which seems high offthe ground, though once you get off the ground climbing is simple until you reach this bolt. From the bolt, get over the small, off-vertical bulge to the next bolt. Once over, walk up easy terrain to the top anchor.


2 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor. TO set up a topanchor, walk around to the top of the rock, andthese will be the bolts on the lower left.


Fun to solo. Sep 12, 2006

I would rate this more of an 8b. And by that I mean there were a ton of bees in the crack above the first bolt and I was stung multiple times. Oct 20, 2013

Bring a #3 cam if you want to protect the first few moves. Jan 31, 2015
