Description

The line just to the left of New Kids; the bolts drop straight down from the corner up high. The big block that is now a bench of sorts behind you as you look at this climb used to be up high on the corner. It came down sometime in early 2004, proving that mother nature still is working on leveling the bluff. Good thing that thing didn't land on anyone. In any case, you get to the crimpy crux pretty early on, near bolt 2, and once you work that out and get into the undercling at bolt 3, you are pretty much home free. IMO this is a great route and finishes up the corner which is pretty sweet.

Protection

Bolts. Please use your own gear for top rope. Please bring an extra biner and if the ones up top look bad or don't easily clip or shut, please replace it. It's good karma.

pulled a big block off this thing today. happened at the second to last bolt, which is about half-way up a large flake features. that flake is all gonna come crashing down at some point. that's no an if but a when. tread lightly up there. Apr 29, 2017
I'm that "friend"

Not a big fan of the bottom half while the rest of the route has pretty enjoyable climbing. Nov 2, 2008

a friend of mine utterly hates this route's crux says the climb's name should be changed to "no touch." Nov 1, 2008

Yeah.. all good. Shifted as I climbed past it so clipped in long to the anchors, got everyone out of the way and kicked and pulled until it came off. Like I said, now there is a little choss left that I couldn't get off, so be careful. Apr 6, 2008

Was wondering when that would let loose. Glad you and your belayer are ok. Apr 6, 2008

Just a heads up if anyone gets on Soft Touch. I was there on Friday (4/4/08) and pulled off a small TV size rock from the upper moves on Soft Touch. I tried to clean it up as best as possible, but there is still some loose stuff and dirt about 6 feet below the anchors. From the sound of the rock that upper corner is going to keep shedding rock.

A good route for someone who's trying to climb their first 12b, and has more technical ability than power. It has a couple of nice crux moves on good rock, and a fun finish. Oct 25, 2007

I have heard multiple people diss this climb. I thought it was a lot of fun. The crux is kinda crimpy, but not overall that bad. Jun 1, 2007

Not really all that much fun. Too bad, because everything above and below the crux is good climbing... Mar 5, 2007
