Description

This route is located on the Aquarium Wall at the rappel tree above Parallel Development (route 1, page 177, Rossiter's guide to Boulder Canyon). Access the route by going 100 yards downstream from the Aquarium Wall and cross the creek. Go right up a faint trail to the base of a moss-covered slab. Pitch 1: Climb the the dirty slab past three bolts to a belay anchor on the right side of the slab. Pitch 2: Climb up past the first bolt on amazing knobs. Reach a good finger pocket by the third bolt and make a hard move to gain a ledge. Gain the ledge a fire straight up a thin seam past three more bolts to the anchor. Great slab climbing on excellent rock. The route just left of Nowhere Man is 5.11c/d and a three star route!

Protection

Eight bolts lead to a two-bolt anchor.

Fun moves on a slab with some Tuolumne-like knobs. There is a tree that leans out over the creek that makes for an exposed backrest while belaying. Note that there is a hard move above a potential ankle-tweaking 1 ft wide ledge near the top of the route -- the only downside to this otherwise fine route. Oct 26, 2007
Great work Bob! Another super route. The climb is delicate, but well protected. When I got through the bottom section, I thought I had it, but the climb was sustained and tricky all the way to the top. Personally, I had a little more trouble in this climb than I had on its neighbor Huck Finn 5.11 c/d. May 31, 2003
