This is located on "The Visor" just up the hill from Surprising Crag approximately 50 feet above Frictionary. This route is the furthest right bolted line on The Visor. Ascend an easy lower section reaching the upper, more vertical section to the anchors. Getting the anchors may be the crux, reaching high to clip before making the moves may be the best, especially for someone a little shorter. It is a decent route, great for intro leaders.


5 bolts - 2 bolt anchor.


This is pretty fun and good for beginner leaders... it would be easy to reach high and clip if you are tall... but as a midget, it was a lot easier for me to clip the anchors once they were at waste level. I though my clip position was a lot more secure even if you are higher up. Jul 11, 2003

Great fun! Just below the anchors there is a solid undercling that let me reach the anchors easily. May 4, 2007

The majority of this climb is more like a 5.7. If you aren't tall (I am 5'4"), clipping the anchors is a bit difficult because you can't just stand up and clip - find a good undercling like one of the previous posters said and toward the right for a so-so hand. You can then stand up and be close enough to get the anchors.
I don't know that I would recommend it for beginner leaders unless they are tall - in that case, definitely. Not so much for the short ones. Aug 1, 2010

Total waltz up to last bolt, then it became awkward 5.8. I couldn't figure out the last moves. I did not find an undercling or anything positive to get up into the final crack right of the anchors. Like the 10a to the left, it felt like the bolter must've been tall and didn't think to place anchors for average height people. Mar 31, 2012

Agreed with the previous posters ... the bolts are a bit reachy for those on the shorter side (5ft 4in) / awkward.. but you can find an okay undercling to make it possible. I would ignore the flaring crack to the right. Aug 1, 2017
