Off Guard (aka GWB, Great White Bullshitter) ascends the face just left of Cool Thing. A left hand on the arete sends the route. Fun moves. Solid stone.


Eight draws and a rope. It shares an anchor with Cool Thing.

Fer gosh sakes, I's juss un averege climer but dis un feels a wee bit 'ard fer a 9 even with that uh leff hand. Specially affer doin' Power & Lies. Dat pointy rok on da leff makes it not too awful to start. Mar 10, 2004

An excellent line; much more difficult than 5.9. There's a hard move to the first bolt; be careful or stick clip it. Delicate thin face climbing and a mantel past the fifth bolt. Oct 26, 2004

Super fun route, close bolts, tight moves, be sure to get the arete hold though! Jul 23, 2008

Maybe a hold broke off or something, but this is not a 9. It is however a fun line and worth doing. Mar 31, 2010

There's a chalked up 'hold' when you first gain the arete that feels like complete bullshit. Maybe it's better if you're taller, but I ended up abandoning the arete completely and doing some fancy footwork to go straight up the slab and then left to the arete after clipping the next bolt. Fun, balancy climbing throughout with an easy boulder problem to start. Mar 10, 2016
