This is the diagonal finger crack on the right side of The Clipboard. The crack itself gobbles small wires and RPs, and there is a single bolt up high. The shameless can clip the first two bolts on the route to the left to get started.


1 bolt and gear to a 2-bolt anchor.


super fun moves, but pretty short. not too hard for a 5.10 Jul 23, 2003

Why the bolt? It's easy up there, and there's good gear at your knees as you start the final, relatively easy (7 or 8) wide crack. Nov 14, 2003
i know the shameless can clip the bolts. but how about the just plain chicken? are they allowed to? Aug 5, 2004
OK. OK. About the solitary bolt... If you look at the photo (above) you will see that the big flake that forms the right side of the final crack is detached. I decided to place a bolt on the left wall in case the flake ever came loose. At least you will still be attached to the wall, and if your belayer becomes road kill, you can still get down safely.

I really wish this wall had been tall and skinny instead of short and fat. This is the third route on the wall, and the third route on great rock with great moves. It's also the third route to be only about a third of a route long: about 12 meters... The gear- do you like stoppers or TCU's? A single rack of either + a quickdraw will get you up the route cleanly. Jul 28, 2005

Young Doug..Isn't the name of this route "The Stigma" ? This is a very fine piece of granite..this route, it's neighbors, and all of those on the west are really a lot of fun! A good day is to bag all of the lines on this square buttress. Rossiter has a knack for finding some great routes. Sep 23, 2005

Fun route. Too bad it's not a little longer. I led it today and felt like it was no harder than a 5.9-, max. I suppose if you try to keep both your hands and feet in the crack, that'd make it harder (much). But, there's too many options for your feet on the face. Well worth doing, though. Sep 29, 2005

Small wires and Aliens. Fun route with good gear. Just wish it was longer.

Even cleaning this route on top route, I felt it to be hard. The moves are there, but it was difficult for me, even my partner took a lead fall on it. I would call it a 5.10+ for sure. Jul 16, 2016
