Third bolt has a loose nut on it if anyone is on their way up and can bring tools. Also to whomever left their yellow BD draw on the second bolt, we brought it down and left it hanging in the nearby tree out of the sun. Should be pretty easy to spot! Aug 5, 2017

What an awesome climb! Great 5.9 anywhere.... I was a little sketched out about the HUGE, Africa-shaped broken piece of rock that dominates the upper half of the climb. If it ever goes, it's likely to take out the climber (since you clip two bolts that are attached to it) and the belayer who is in the direct fall path. Not once did it move or feel loose, but if you look at what's actual holding up this HUGE flake up on the rock wall, it will freak you out! Just sayin'
BTW - there are crazy birds living in it that love to dive bomb you while you're climbing.... Aug 10, 2015

Great pitch. A hair committing. Aug 9, 2014

Loved this route, two distinct lines going up from the 4th bolt. Both fun, the right line is more exposed and has some great airy moves. Left gives you some easy crack jamming to the anchors. Jul 27, 2014

This was a fun route! Another well-protected route with fun moves at transmitter towers.

Note: The nut on the left anchor bolt was loose. I was able to loosen/tighten it by hand as of 6/27/2014. Jun 28, 2014

Great climb with 2 different variations if you want to switch it up. You can either go up and over the africa looking flake or around to the left. Both use the same bolt. Nov 21, 2010

Super fun lead. Provides some good exposure for a simple 5.9. Great moves the whole way up, just wish it was longer. May 8, 2010

I was surprised to see bolts next to a whole bunch a very protectable crack. Looks like Doug has followed us to the dark side. Of course, my rack was still at the bottom of my pack, so I clipped all the bolts.
This route has the best moves on the crag IMO. Aug 15, 2008

If you cheat and go left at the crux, it's only 5.8. Jun 28, 2008

This was a good route. I liked the balancy moves heading to the crux. Crux was committing. Felt a bit stiff for 5.9, but definitely worth doing. Jun 4, 2008

Great climb. About 7 draws to two cold shuts. There are flakes everywhere but balance is the key. The crux is in the middle of the climb. Sep 9, 2007
