Description [Suggest Change]

Sizzle is a technical route that combines hard moves across a slab followed by a bulge and groove that ends with a run out slab for a finish. It starts up and left from the base of the small, dirty looking pool. It can comfortably be done as one pitch with a 200 foot rope.

Scramble up and to the left along the edges of a slab. At the top of the slab, locate two side by side bolt hangers on a bulging headwall. Clip the first bolt and mount the slab. Clip the second bolt on the left and un-clip the first bolt. Desperately work left and up to the third bolt. Climb up into an undercling and over the bulge into a left facing groove. Climb up the groove to the last bolt. Make a move back to the right and mount a right leaning ramp that finishes at the anchors. The anchors are hidden to the right about 20 feet away from the last bolt. Enjoy.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Use the standard rack of quickdraws and a 200 foot rope.
