This climbs a crack on the right of a boulder cave.


Walk up past "Off The Wall' to a prominent boulder cave.


Pro to 2".


Awesome route...bring some good technique. Mar 19, 2007

Great crack that requires technique to get through the crux as there are no face holds. Middle of the route takes slung features and then a thin face move to top out. Great route! Biggest thing I took was a #2 camalot, but you could place a 3, or even a 4 on this route.

Oh yeah, if you think it's .9, you're in for a surprise. Jul 19, 2007

This climb is no 5.9. I thought Buster Brown was easier but then again fingery cruxs are not my forte. Jul 21, 2010

Down a musty corridor in time leading to a faded memory of what is more than likely a different route, this route is a 5.9. Gotta love Blitzo!

The crux has bomber locks but I feel like the foot jam you get at that point levers you out of them somewhat. Consequently, the low crux on this route feels a bit burly, but it's soon over.

The top of this route looks like a real pile but is actually pretty interesting climbing. You won't get bored. Pro up to a #3 or #4 camalot will work out pulling around the bulge. Sep 4, 2011
It was a good day when we did the first free ascent. Earlier we did a new route called "Horny". We named it that because we saw a couple getting it on next to the stream. They were quick and unexciting. Then we came across a bag of weed, bagged a FFA and had a swell day! Jan 15, 2012

Did this route thinking it was Changeling in the guidebook. The description of changeling seemed appropriate for this "steep hands and fingers down low." When I hopped on the route I was pleasantly surprised on how hard 5.9 was at this crag. I even slipped down low, but luckily enough to catch myself with my good handjam. I only brought up to a #2 C4 on this but would highly recommend bringing a #4 to protect the top if this is your onsight level. Traversing left to the anchors was pretty thought provoking with a bad swing if you slip at that move Jul 23, 2018
