This has a fun start and an average and long finish. Turn the roof (look for a large jug up and to the left), then continue up the slab.


This is the second line from the left.


10 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.


A fun 2-pitch outing can be had by combining this with the end of skimbleshanks. Just top out on Old Deuteronomy and step about 15ft. left on a grassy ledge to the upper portion of Skimbleshanks. -Mike. Apr 23, 2002
I thought this was the most enjoyable climb of the area. Fun start, cool crystal formations above. May 14, 2002
This route is super cool. The roof at the bottom is lots of fun, nicely complementing the thin moves at the top. Lots of fun. Mar 18, 2004

I've heard tell the "10" crux of this climb is the opening move above the first bolt (the rest goes at pleasant 5.9, with opportunities for rest). I'm tall (6') and have a three-inch ape index, so didn't find this move to be harder than a spicy nine.

But I've also heard tell that I was doin' it "wrong" by ascending right of the bolt, not left.

Take it as you like it, fun times are in store for all those interested. Apr 5, 2010

Anywway, first move is definitely the hardest part, though I'm 5'5 and didn't find it too difficult. Crystals are amazing. Nov 10, 2013

This is a fun route! The beginning crux is very short and is over quickly. I have to agree with the comments above about how "neat" the crystals are on the upper face. Apr 25, 2014

Watch out for the cactus just over the anchors. Aug 8, 2015

Completely disagree with the crux being the first pull over the roof, it's incredibly easy/fun. The crux is about halfway up before the crystals when you hit a blank section on the slab. I had to do a weird side press on a barely there sloper into a high foot then reach to bad holds. The rest cruises. Jul 5, 2017
