Description

This route is called "20th Century Man" in the new Knapp/Thompson/Aschert guidebook, and "21st Century Man" in Rick Thompson's Cactus Cliff/Spiney Ridge guide. It was mistakenly called "Sunday Pockets" in previous guides.

The climb is located at the right end of the first alcove on Spiney Ridge and follows bolts angling right up a face to a left-facing corner with a crack.

The start is probably done in a variety of ways (I certainly missed out a bunch of chalked holds). Figure out the easiest line that doesn't take you too far from the bolts up and then right to a crack in left-facing corner. Climb the crack/corner to the anchors.

I give this 2 stars for decent rock and reasonable continuity/length, also because I thought is was better than 'Travis is Sole King'.

Protection

7 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.
