Description

Approach as for Capitalist, but do not start up the hill nor descend to Lunchmoney. There is ledge system trending left for 100 feet. Stroh's starts from big boulder on ledge. The anchors of 'Lunchmoney' top out on this ledge system to the south. Consider belay anchors on the exposed ledge (TCUs / medium nuts / boulder thread).

Please respect historical 'plaque' at the base of the route.

Protection

6 bolts. 2 rap anchors. TCUs or medium nuts or boulder thread for possible belay anchor.

Today I ripped off a hold just up from the diagonal at the start. That'll effect the left start - apologies - but the start to the right felt better anyway and wasn't affected.

The better crux came in getting to the jug below the roof. Stay balanced, and keep an open mind. (Don't cheat yourself by heading right and up to the roof only to traverse back left.) Sep 28, 2017

Found this to be pretty stiff for 11a. For me, the crux was getting to the jug just below the roof. Perhaps I was missing something, but it was a long, balancy move off a not-so-good right hand. I found this climb to be significantly harder than Venture Capital (11a) to the left of this route. Jul 25, 2013

Highly recommend a stick clip for this route. There are some thin, kind of tricky moves off the deck and reaching the first bolt. While possible from the boulder at the base, it would be a lot easier with a stick clip. Blowing the first bolt would be really, really bad.
Otherwise, get on it! May 6, 2013

Really cool route.. all the holds are just where I wanted them to be! Those moves pulling the roof were the best for me. Mar 23, 2010

For your convenience, I added a 1 bolt belay anchor on the Stroh's ledge, oriented for upward pull and piece of mind. Jul 13, 2004
If you don't want to down climb scramble from the base of the route, you can rap/lower to safe ground at the base of the wall with a 70m rope. With a 60m rope, you could get to easier ground but you would still have to scramble about 20 feet down. The ledges are easy but a fall would be very bad. Lowering or rapping is much safer on the way down. May 5, 2004

The left-trending ledge system mentioned in the route description starts by a table-top boulder and white graffiti on the wall: "MAC JO 82". Oct 7, 2003
Excellent climb! Although it is short, It is one of the best routes of its grade in CCC. Short people (like me) will find good starting just left of the boulder for the start. Felt like 11. Feb 3, 2003

Here's another great route at an unused crag. Tricky, technical and crimpy best describe this line. With a good crux and great finishing holds, this route will be enjoyed by all who climb it. Dec 3, 2002
