Description

Rim Job must stand in the top five routes at CWC, and it would be a worthy addition to any climbing area. At CWC it is brilliant. Behind the Boux Block is a very (indeed, very) steep line that takes the commanding prow at the right end of the wall. Begin climbing on the left face and angle over to the arete for the first clip. This is followed by a series of slaps on the inverted arete. Chase up to a horizontal seam on the right before swinging back left to grab a huge hueco. Pull out of the hueco onto the face to start a series of pocket moves that culminate back on the arete above. Jog back left at the top to clip the anchor. If this route has any draw-back, it is that the stone is quite sharp and hard on the hands. FFA may have gone I.S. Greene. Great stone, great problem, and exciting climbing with a complex sequence in the start all add up to a CWC classic.

Why is Chris Drysdale listed on the FA list? He was totally out of the picture by then and had zero to do with this route.
Also regarding the mention of the project to the right, it is called Bones and listed here. Sep 18, 2009

Does anyone have any short person beta (5'2") for the last move? Getting the last crimp on the face seems remarkably insecure and desperate. Jan 28, 2008

FA - Anderson - so far back I can't remember when now. The variation around the right side is an open project for whomever to do. Jul 22, 2004
In my opinion, much harder than other lower 12s in the canyon (Pay Homage, Project X, Bolted By Committe/Karbonite Manuever) that I have sent.... So 12c seems unlikely.... [Definitely] tricky and an amazing blend of power/endurance and technique to get you through.... Unfortunately thought I broke a hold today working on the route.... It was a good left hand gaston just low of the horizontal seem and for shorter guys who use it as a bump it could make the move signifcantly harder since the hold is now cut to 1/2 the size it used to be....

Just wondering, in Hanson's guide it says "the righ hand variation with three Metolius hangers is still a project", is it still a project? Just wondering. Jun 10, 2003
