Description

2 routes left of Printer Boy. OK this is either a 1-star or 3-star route, depending on how you like your climbs. The name says it all. Power past the first clip or two, onto a slabby face. Keep your cool as you search for the sequences on somewhat tecnical terrain. Good ballance, footwork and the ability to downclimb a move or two (I probably made at least 6, maybe 12 downclimb moves - but I get scared easily!) may come in handy. Better climbers may be able to pick their line, but the grade will definitely get harder than 10b. Somewhat continuous and certainly challenging but well bolted.

Protection

10 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. 60m rope or 2 50m ropes.

A maze indeed! Route zigzagged across the bolt line. Hardest single move was clipping second bolt (spicy!). The sequences were rarely straightforward and very technical. I thought it was harder than a number of 10ds I've done. The people I climbed with (all taller than 5'11") didn't seem to think it was quite as difficult as I did (I'm 5'5"). Lots of crimpy traverses with smeared feet. Some weird underclings and other general shenanigans. Thoughtful climb. Jun 8, 2016

Wow, "thought provoking" is a true assessment. Very fun route that is engaging the entire way. It seems like just about every move is a 5.10 move. Enjoy. Jun 10, 2010

I agree with the description and comments- sustained at grade and earns its name- crux at first two bolts, yet it doesn't back down much- technical and balancy. Aug 22, 2009

IMHO this is the quintessential Monitor Rock route. I guess that places me in the 3-star camp. 90' of devious deciphery, and the continual Monitor question: should I stick with this rail that goes up and left and is easy, or dice it out right so I can clip that bolt... Apr 14, 2003
