This is the leftmost bolted route on Billy Goat Rock.

Climb up using large holds for 2 bolts until a balancy section where a foot fell off, making this once 5.10c considerably harder than it's immediate neighbor Permanent Erection (5.11a). Once past this section large Castle Rocky pockets await as the route meets up with Permanent Erection.

The crux sits above an old rusty bolt (and only the second one up), so toproping is probably advisable.


6 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor, which is over the lip of the rock. To set up a toprope, bring a couple 6 foot slings, and walk up to the top of the rock and up over the top, and back down to the route. Be careful downclimbing.
