Curb Service is on a diamond-shaped rock about 75' right of Centennial. There is a parking pullout just below the rock, about 75 yards before you get to Practice Rock. Approach time from the car is less than a minute.

The route follows 4 bolts up the left-center of the rock to the R of Fin.

Power past an overhang by the first bolt (10a), then continue on easier climbing to the second bolt. Don't fall before the second clip or you'll hit the ground. More thin face moves lead to the third bolt. You can finish the climb at 5.9 by moving left toward the arete, climbing up, then back right at the top, or at 5.10d by climbing straight up just left of the third and fourth bolts.

Fun moves, but a few runouts to keep you on your toes.


4 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. There's an easy runout to the 2nd bolt; don't fall before the clip or you'll hit the ground.

Good quick one on a cold morning - in the sun from the east. Indeed watch the ground fall, which is why I'd say R or S. I'd say 10d straight up from the 2nd bolt, and 10a (R) if you go left. You don't want to fall from out left, before you clip the 3rd bolt, but it is definitely easier that way. Jul 30, 2007

I can't see how the move off the ground, straight up past the bolt, is less than 10d, and I would have guessed 11a if I hadn't read about it beforehand. No way it's 9 - no matter what you do at the top of the route. Mar 10, 2008

Maybe PG-13 if you screwed up the second clip and there is good swing potential. Maybe I've been sport climbing too much. A cool line with good position. Apr 11, 2009

The first move isn't worse than .10a/b if you can stem your feet and make a controlled move to the horn next to the first bolt. The top section, if you follow the bolt line, feels all of .10d, however. Even clipping the anchors feels a touch tenuous. Sep 7, 2009

Short and sweet. A 10 second approach! The crux seems to be initially getting onto the rock. Also, you may want to climb left a bit to reach the 4th bolt. Somewhat awkward anchor stance.... Jul 18, 2011

I agree with Nick, This thing is way harder than 10a right off the deck. From the last bolt to the anchors is solid 10a, moving left and then back right. Don't blow any of the clips. Jul 2, 2013

The lowest part of the flake between the third and fourth bolt blew off on me last night. It was about the size of a football, so luckily my belayer was not hit. This makes that section a bit harder or at least more or a reach to get on the flake. I feel the opening move is still harder, so it doesn't change my rating for it. May 3, 2014

This is a climb that you want to make it to the third bolt on. I'd say it's a PG-13 until the 3rd bolt. After that, the slab will not harm you. I am a little thrown off by the Wolverine Boulder Canyon guidebook because of its 10a rating. Especially at the crux, I'm convinced it's at least a 10d, maybe even 11a. Jul 11, 2014

If you stay belly to the bolts and right of them, the 3rd bolt to the top is 5.11a or harder. 5.10a if you go left a little, except yeah, a bouldery start. Sep 3, 2015

10a? Hahhahahaha! Must be a misprint in the guidebook on this one. Sep 19, 2016
Guidebook typo? 11a off the deck unless you're super strong. Up high it's way harder than 10a if you try to follow the bolts. Apr 27, 2017

I'm not super strong, and I thought the first move off the deck was 10a/b at the most. The moves up high felt harder to me. Jul 27, 2017

The beginning was really fun, but near the top started to feel really hard for me because I'm short. I also used a sling to wrap a horn above the first bolt that was a bit sketchy but better than nothing for the runout. Apr 30, 2018
