Description

This is the first sport climb to the left of Bloody Fingers. There is ground fall potential reaching the 3 bolt, so be careful.

That being said, this is a very fun route. It starts out with some thin moves, before reaching a quartz dike. The upper route can either follow the dike or the slab to the left. The well spaced bolts will lead you to a trad anchor on a ledge (there is now a bolted anchor at the top). Rap off of the anchors on top of Bloody Fingers.

This ain't no "sport" climb....

I think Reid climbed this in '86. Then...me. Yee haa! Oct 4, 2009

Seemed like there was a tiny nut placement in there somewhere. I led it before I had such equipment, so it was a little hairy to say the least. Oct 4, 2009

Typical delicate granite slab climbing. Scary fall potential. Small dish on top near the edge that you can brace your feet in for a belay, the addition of anchors would make this route a bit more enjoyable. Oct 19, 2013

"the addition of anchors would make this route a bit more enjoyable."

Bullshit. Much more interesting to build an anchor. Oct 20, 2013

As of two days ago, this route definitely had bolted anchors. Also, I'd argue that the ≈ 1 foot wide quartz dike running straight up the wall, just to the right of the bolt line, greatly increases the route's aesthetic value and the overall experience. If you're looking for something to climb that's in the range of Bloody Fingers, you should at the very least drop a rope on this grippy bad boy if you don't feel comfortable leading it. 60 meters will serve you fine.

Fun route. The hardest (10a) moves are well protected. There are some delicate 5.9 moves way above your last bolt however. Oct 5, 2015

Some scary fall potential, yes, but scary is different than dangerous.
If you blew a clip you could hit the ground with an inattentive belayer, but the climbing is protected better than that and PG is fair, but 'R' is really overstating it. Jun 16, 2016

I thought this was hands down harder and more sustained than its neighbor New Toy (which got a 10b in Bingham...) May 21, 2018
