Description

This sport climb starts to the right of Wheat Thin. You can start from the upper ledge or from the dirt. Well protected face and slab climbing is the name of the game. A good climb to do while waiting in line for the nearby trad classics. Enjoyable moves and position...

Wish I had a wrench with me...many spinning hangers. Someone might want to give those a tightening. Sep 28, 2015

Very well protected by City of Rocks standards. Good slab climbing, maybe slightly more difficult than the slab on Just Say No. Jul 20, 2015

Precise smears and crimpy side pulls on the right move you through the crux. Jun 12, 2009

Fun lead. The middle slab has some technical moves with crimper edge hand holds and makes you think. Jun 7, 2009

One of the few routes I've done at the City that seemed overclimbed: polished, greasy. Maybe it was just the day, but felt stiff for the grade. I won't rush back to it. Nov 15, 2008

If you like thin face climbing you'll like this one. A good route that is probably harder than it looks. Jul 15, 2008

I believe 9 draws plus two for the anchors. A high first bolt and well-spaced bolts in the easier ground. I believe between 2 and 3 was the worst, but not runout. A really nice line with great moves. The brown face in the middle just keeps coming at you. Would get 4 stars if the climbing was like that all the way. The finish almost spat me off as I was clipping the chains. Well worth climbing.
