Description

This is the route just right (uphill) from Simplexity. It is a long way to the first bolt and the crux is probably getting to that bolt, so take care.

Protection

7-9 bolts.

Pretty good route. Getting to the first bolt is scary for the leader! Sep 15, 2006

Between "Going to the Chapel" and CCD, I've only found 4 routes (L to R): "Altered Boy" (5.7), "Simplexity" (5.9+), this unknown route (5.9-), and "Jesus on a Stick" (5.10a). I wonder if what you thought was "Simplexity" was actually "Altered Boy"?

BTW, while I found the bulge above the huge ledge to be more challenging than getting to the first bolt (leading), my wife and son (both TR) found the bottom to be harder. I guess everything clicked for me at the bottom.

I diverged at the next-to-last bolt and joined J-o-a-S since there was somebody already on the Simplexity anchors. Made J-o-a-S a reasonable TR for me. Oct 16, 2005
There are three routes between Simplexity and CCD that are not in Gillett's book. What are these routes? Oct 14, 2005
This is a pretty good quality climb that I've done a couple of times. Recently we watched a guy tape a couple of hiking(ski) poles together to stick clip the first bolt -- not a bad idea if you don't like doing the crux to get there. Aug 29, 2005
