Description

Ah yeah...this is a great climb with two fun sections. On the Morning Sun Wall to the right of the other mentioned climbs are 4 sport climbs with two-bolt anchors atop. Marijuana is the second from the left and starts atop a ledge. You may want a stick clip for the first. The bolts atop are not to be lowered off, so one will have to eventually clean the draws and walk off (the best way is opposite of the Cave Wall). You may also want to use 2 foot slings atop to eliminate rope drag. Party on!

6-7 draws.

Be careful moving past the first bolt above the middle ledge. I fudged the sequence and came very close to introducing my ankles to the ledge. Any one who wants some BETA: From the first, large, sloping hueco move left for a deep slash in the face, rather than up to the right towards some slippery cobbles and another large dish/pocket.

This is a wonderful line! The bolt spacing is good for the mind. Great rests, be confident, it's all there! Jul 31, 2007

In my defense, I'm only sometimes on this route (Marijuana that is)... Apr 23, 2006
It is probably always best to toprope Marijuana. May 22, 2003

Is it alright to toprope this route, are the bolts on top in good shape? How many are there... May 22, 2003

Fun climb, but be carful leading it out. Especially after the huge legde halfway up. JUst above that there is a sloper thats pretty greasy. My friend bailed at this spot and busted up his ankle pretty good when he hit the ledge below. Belayers, heads up on this one. Mar 10, 2003

Bolt placements are pretty sporty, but the harder moves are reasonably protected. The guidebook lists the route as 10d - I'd call it at least 10c. Apr 23, 2002
