Description

A superb slab route, one of my favorites at Tollhouse. The first pitch is the crux with 5.9 thin edges and smearing. Fun climbing that keeps your attention. This pitch is followed by a pitch of 5.6 and then a pitch of 5.7 before running into the right facing dihedral that is the culmination of other routes such as the Traverse.

Location

Located less than 100 ft. climbers left of Elephant Walk. This climb starts on one of the lowest points of the face and takes a direct line up the face below the Tollhouse Traverse.

Protection

Draws and a light rack.

Outstanding climb. Tons of fun. Most of the time, you get to trust your feet on nothing. Mar 8, 2009

The first pitch is some good and hard slab! It stays pretty sustained until after the fourth bolt. I kept wanting to climb to the right of the first few bolts and reach over left to clip. First 2 bolts were a little scary gettin to. I thought, although my belayer ensured he had me, that I was going to hit the ground going for the 2nd bolt. The 3rd and 4th bolts are spaced but you'd be ok. And, of course, after that it really spaces as it gets easy. Cool rock on the end of this pitch and the second pitch. It's really a one pitch route though as there are multiple ways to go after and all are relatively very easy. Feb 18, 2013
