Description

At the parking area, you will notice an obvious gully splitting the cliff. This is just across from Beachball. Just right of this gully is an arete with bolts on the right side. They are painted. This is just Left of Offwidth Workout. This climb is steep and thin, with footwork and sidepulls being key. Bolt 1 is an easy clip, bolt 2 seems to clip easier from the arete or even a little left of it. Bolt 3 on the other hand is a tough clip. Very consistent climbing and enjoyable all the way up.

Limelight seekers, take note. The route is 30 feet off the road, which means a ten second bushwack from your car, followed by three bolts of fun puzzle solving. There are good clipping holds for the first two bolts. But be ready for a good, clean fall below the third clip, as the route earns its rating between bolts 2 and 3. A cool, double layback sequence gains the anchor chains. I'd give this route three stars, if it were longer. Jun 29, 2004
To me it felt harder than 11b if you commit to the intended line. Would be great if it was longer. Nice after work lapper Feb 26, 2016
