Description

Start up flakes and broken cracks, pull a small roof, and then head up a short section of slab to reach a smooth face. Above the slab work up and left on hidden slots and jugs to a finishing mantle or rockover onto a small ledge with the anchors. Fairly long and varied, making this a recommended climb for the grade.

Location

This is the next bolted line right of Claim Jumper and climbs the outer face of a narrow pillar between two wide cracks.

Protection

8 bolts, chain anchors

Fun route and very sustained. Stout 10a! A good mix of balance and power for the grade, and certain parts lean toward 10b forsure. Enjoy mounting that sucker at the top! :)

Consensus: 10a/b 3 star Aug 30, 2015

Yes it's true, the anchors used to be where the last bolt was but were moved higher to provide additional climbing and a more logical stopping point at the no-hands ledge.

While possible to make the last moves onto the ledge awkward and unpleasant, good beta can make it casual and in fact quite fun. May 7, 2015

Top out is in an awkward position and I agree it'd be a better route if it ended at the last bolt. Still fun getting into that slot and body jamming to clip the anchors.

Beware theres a super chalked right facing flake at the very top thats gonna break at any moment. It's tempting but probably wise to stay off of it. Aug 4, 2014

Hardest 10a at Holcomb. Claimjumper 10a just to the left felt easier for sure. Aug 12, 2012

Found out the anchors use to be where the last bolts located. Top out is unnecessary and wasn't fun at all. Should have ended on the face climb. Fun nonetheless with a tricky roof section. Everyone I climbed with had different beta for it Jul 11, 2010

The short roof and technical face towards the top make this a must do for the budding leader or oldtimers alike. Jun 1, 2008

Just when you expect to finish up on this route, it surprises you with a flat, polished top out. The small roof and the moves through the last 2 bolts are the highlight! Agree with Adam's comment about the sequential moves near the top..... May 19, 2008

This is a very fun route. A bit sequential before the last bolt can get one pretty pumped before making the last clip. Mar 19, 2007
