Description

Crash Test Blondes is on the furthest North end of the crag proper and is the first route to the right of the 5.9 warm up, "Pup". The rock itself is rather blonde, but I would not want to crash test it or the landing. The line fires up to a small overhang by climbing on very slabby rock, that is not a slab. The nearly continuous friction climbing makes the start feel like a slab. Turn a corner and head up sparsely protected to the overlap. Big jugs, and the crux move just preceed the anchor. I found both roof bolts to be easy to clip, but felt that the last bolt was too far right to protect the move to the anchor very well. Other than that, this is a fun route, but feels very committing.

Protection

QD only. Bring 8-9 draws for the route and a couple of clips for the double bolt anchor at the top of this 70-75 foot route.
