Description

This is a great route to work on for your first 12 for a couple reasons. First, a little crux at the start and a fun crux at the end. Second, it is super well bolted and you can easily aid it to get your gear back. On the 2150 wall, this is the 3rd route from the left, and it is pretty obvious by the number of bolts on it. Getting through the first part is a bit technical and footsy. The middle part is pretty casual. Then, up top it gets a bit steeper and you have some sweet little pockets to play with. When you are at the anchors, stop, rest, and have a look around. The scenery is worth the effort.

Protection

11 bolts and bolted anchor.

Check the spelling on this route name. Oct 3, 2001
Spelling is correct if it is named after an album by the Grateful Dead with the same name. Nov 1, 2001

I don't know as much about climbing as I do 'bout the Dead. Aoxomoxoa. Palindrome. Jan 5, 2010

Enjoyable moves, but a very, very sharp crux at the top had me almost bleeding after only a handful of attempts. Beautiful rock, great sequences and excellent protection, but razor sharp in spots, more so than others on this wall. Feb 3, 2013

Really fun route and well protected, although it is advantageous to have the draws pre-hung (couple clips just out of reach). The upper crux really drives home the old "try to get as much weight on your feet" mantra.... Apr 22, 2013

Bad first 5.12 recommendation. The top crux comes after a huge rest, so the crux is a bit bouldery on sharp, shallow, two finger pockets with poor clipping stances. Naturally shares some holds with Stick It in the middle, so it feels a bit forced in spots. Jan 27, 2019
