This route has a couple of sticky moves off the floor and a little crumbly rock above.


7 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Eds. Update 6/16: lead bolts 2-7 and the two anchor bolts were replaced using 1/2 inch 5-piece stainless bolts with ClimbTech hangers. Thanks, Lisa.
Watch out for the bees!!! If it weren't for getting stung about 5 times after stinking my hand in a bee's nest on the way down, I would have loved this climb. Harder than it looks from the bottom, what you think are juggas turn out to be slopas. Sep 13, 2001
There are new anchors for this route as of 6-20-04. Two 1/2 inch powers expansion bolts with Metolius hangers and chains. One need not share the anchors with Poker Face any longer and both routes can be set up for toproping simultaneously. Jun 20, 2004

Also watch out for snakes - if my friend hadn't been climbing the adjacent route and forewarned me, I would have grabbed a snake that was chilling on one of my handholds. Jul 7, 2009

Surprisingly high quality route. Moves off the deck were a little stiff, after that is much easier but still lots of fun. May 23, 2011

I climbed this route today, nice warmup. In the large pocket directly to the right of the 4th bolt, there is a bee nest forming. Heads up! Jun 2, 2011
Climbed this route about 2 weeks ago, and half of the bolts were loose including the anchor bolts. There are loose bolts on Poker Face also. Just a heads up.... Nov 3, 2012
In October, Dale Haas and I added quicklinks and rappel rings to the anchor. The hardware for this work was provided by the American Safe Climbing Association - ASCA (www.safeclimbing.org). They appreciate your support. Dec 10, 2013

The crux (for me) is just getting on and up past the first bolt. May 5, 2014
The first two hangers on this route were cold shuts. Dale Haas and I replaced the hanger on the second bolt with a Fixe hanger. I snapped off the head of the first bolt while trying to unscrew it, so we replaced it with a SS Powers five-piece and a Fixe hanger. The hardware for this work was provided by the ASCA(www.safeclimbing.com). They appreciate your support. Oct 6, 2014
In June 2015, Dale Haas and I upgraded the anchor hardware with SS quicklinks and SS rap rings. The American Safe Climbing Association (ASCA -safeclimbing.org) provided the hardware. They appreciate your support. Oct 16, 2015

Lead bolts 2-7 and the two anchor bolts were replaced using 1/2 inch 5-piece stainless bolts with ClimbTech hangers. All holes were reused. Thanks BCC for supplying the hardware. Consider donating: BCC link Jun 15, 2016
