Located in a National Forest Fee Area Details

Description

Slippery jugs and sidepulls with now-you-see-them-now-you-don't feet to a good rest.

Following the rest comes the crux: A tricky, strenuous roof problem that is all about feet. The bit past the crux is exciting due to lingering crux-pump.

Finally, a bit of nerve-wracking (you don't want to blow it here, now do you?) traverse moves with poor feet to the chains.

Protection

8 bolts to a 2 chain anchor.

Location

Second line from the right on the lower (right-most) part of Membrane.

I guess you're supposed to traverse left at the top to the chains? I didn't see anything to the left, so I traversed right to the anchors atop Riptide. I guess I'll have to figure out where the actual anchors are for this route next time I give it a go. Aug 26, 2016

Not the best route at the crag. Could use another bolt between 4-5, but the climbing seemed secure enough in the sharp crack despite early season wet slime. The crux contained no pocket jugs so therefore I flailed.

I wonder if Nelson has sent... May 3, 2015

The first 4 bolts is not a gimme. Go straight up and trend left with 3-4 bolts a bit run out. Hand jams, underclings, side pulls with tension specific foot holds keep u on the wall. Find the arm bar or knee bar rest in the cave area before the obvious crux. Power thru the crux on thin holds and find some relief up higher. It's all about your foot sequence. Ouch my fingers hurt after climbing this thing. Jul 22, 2012
Its on the far right of the crag, left of Riptide, Bill Boyle did the FA and the roof is funkadelic. Aug 18, 2006
