[Hide Comment] This picture and description makes me feel a lot better about myself. I thought it was the baby jr gets spanked. I came here from georgia and it made me think ratings were much stiffer here. ThanksAndrew Robbins Aug 22, 2003

[Hide Comment] Requires a 60m rope. Be sure to knot the ends of your rope while repelling. Slab climbing. Sep 1, 2007

[Hide Comment] ER, Dale, are you talking about the same route? Farthest to the right with the pretty sketchy, super rounded slopers at the top? There is NO way I would recommend this to a 5.6 leader. Try the route again and compare it to OK Corral and some of the other routes on Trad. Dec 31, 2010
[Hide Comment] This is not a safe place for feet, first the rabbit's foot, then mine. When I climbed this a few years ago I mistakely thought I was on baby jr. gets spanked, an easy 5.6, because that was the climb furthest to the right according to my guide book. The climb got significantly harder about 2/3 of the way up. There were no good holds above and downclimbing seemed too difficult. At 5'9" I was almost able to clip into the next bolt on my tippy toes, but alas I fell about 25 feet and broke my foot. This section should earn this climb a 5.9 rating. Jan 9, 2012

[Hide Comment] Poorly placed bolts in my opinion. Ledge fall is possible more than once. Feb 12, 2014

[Hide Comment] Dale is talking about a different route. this route is every bit as thought-provoking and challenging as 5.8 should be. don't read this wrong-route, all-caps, sandbag nonsense and jump on this line thinking its a breeze. Mar 8, 2015

[Hide Comment] Nice moderate sport slab route. The bolts are well placed to protect the most difficult moves but the combination of bulges and low angled ledges can be treacherous. The line zigzags requiring a couple shoulder length slings to avoid rope drag. I wonder if any of those holds were chipped. Dec 14, 2016
