Description

This route is located on the far rightside of the Bowling Alley a 150 feet up and right from the large ponderosa tree near the road. Hike up the short gully and look for a line of bolts shooting up a slab to a roof. This is the route. Climb up past the first two bolts and reach a good ledge. Climb past three bolts on a clean slab (cool slab moves) and crank up through a left-facing corner. Make a hard move over the small overhang (crux) and climb up the nice face to the anchor. This is a good route that climbs a lot better than it looks! A nice addition to the cliff and a great place for a late afternoon workout!

Protection

Nine clips will get you to a two-bolt anchor.

Much more fun than it looked from the ground! I thought that the roof-crux (well, just past the roof) was pretty tough. More like 5.12. Also, the key flake over the roof was flexing quite a bit. When this breaks, this route is going to get a lot tougher! Jun 6, 2017

Hello all,
So someone has bolted a line just between Nebraska and Curb Service. It is a combo of gear and bolts with a huge, scary loose block after the 3rd bolt. Does anyone what it is called and what it goes at? Thanks Jun 7, 2014

This is a pretty nice route, and its proximity to the road makes it a good project for short late-summer days. The slab moves before the crux--around the sixth bolt--are tricky and interesting. Here's my crux beta: after clipping the seventh, step up to the good right foot and match the arete undercling (this may break off eventually) to get the left hand on it. Now reach off straight to the right; there is a somewhat invisible poor whitish quartz sidepull there. Using this you can stand on your right foot. Ignore the bolt at your face; clip it after the move. Pause a moment and throw with the right hand to get the jug as you are falling outward. If you catch it, you're done. It seems pretty clean as of late 2009. Aug 12, 2008
Really fun route, but stuff is still breaking off. Be careful after the last bolt! When I was belaying, my partner's (rather large) foothold broke off and landed one foot to the left of me. Scary! The start is pretty loose, too, and I even managed to break a small crystal I was using as a finger hold on the slab. Once this things sees a little more traffic and gets cleaned up, it will make a great addition to the canyon. Very sustained, yet various types of moves. Jan 25, 2004
I was lucky enough to get to try this route with the fa's the day after it was bolted. It is a good route with a trickier slab than meets the eye and a technical little roof. Good people too! Jun 29, 2003
