Description

This route starts near the beginning of Just Say No 5.9-. Climb up and right on runout but moderate face climbing.

The run out climbing is on positive holds, stay strong. The upper roof is staight forward and gear is had after pulling the roof. Load up on gear and run it out another 30ft to the anchor.

A good runout test piece for the moderate leader.

Protection

Draws, nuts (big ones), and medium cams

Honestly, the run-out to the anchors of this is far better than Just Say No (immediately to the left of this line), so I'm not sure why this gets an X and that route just gets PG13. You get a higher piece of gear than the final anchor on Just Say No, and it's a pretty bomber placement. For either one, if you blow the run-out to the chains, the fall is going to suck pretty bad.

Also, the climbing is dramatically easier than Just Say No. Jul 20, 2015

One of the best routes at COR. Never a line!

And, if you clip any of the bolts on Just Say No, you're off route and doing a different climb called; Just Say No To Sinsemilla! Nov 23, 2011

Runout to the first bolt. One of the best routes at its grade in the City, IMHO. If you wanted pro, you could lead to the first bolt or three on Just Say No, then come down, and climb up to the first bolt on the route with another lead rope. Four stars. Jun 6, 2006
