Description

Willie's runs into the highly visible slot on the right side of the crag and takes off from the ledge. Frankly, even good stone, which this has, cannot compensate for weird, awkward, and unpleasant. Shuffle up to the slot on moderate terrain. Stand up into the slot and to get an awkward, sharp jam. A power move on good opposition surfaces gains the anchor. I'm not sure why I dislike this line, not everyone does, but this line has never seemed to be worth the effort; I'd rather stay home and do pull-ups.

Half a dozen draws and a rope.

I bolted this line & invited Rick & Chris to climb it with me. I can't say that I really enjoy this route either, even though it does have a hard crux. I have probably climbed it twice in 1998, but I don't ever recall repeating it since. Many routes are worth repeating at this crag, but this isn't one of them. Jul 26, 2017
