From path, boulder up 15 feet to a ledge. Follow 4 bolts on the right side of the headwall to anchors.


It is 20 feet left of Aricept.


4 bolts to 2-bolt anchor.

I liked this little route. It seemed that the hardest moves were the footwork to get on the wall at the first bolt. Also, one of the blocks you're likely to pull on to get up to the ledge, about 3/4 of the way up on the right, isn't solid and looks glued down with dirt. Aug 22, 2009

Agree with LG that the moves below the first bolt are the most difficult. You can ensure that you get that first bolt clipped (I can do it being 5'9"), then work the bouldery start.

After that start, I had fun. Some of the holds are a little dirty. Sep 10, 2012

Not bad, I agree the hardest part was at the first bolt. Some cool moves up higher. Jan 8, 2013

Dangerous for a 5.9 leader, easy to deck on the sharp ledge if you blow the crux moves getting past the first bolt. Also it's solid 5.10 if you try to go straight to the second bolt instead of staying right (and even staying right is very tough 5.9). I wouldn't be surprised if a hold or two broke off at some point. Short leaders may need an extendo draw to clip the first bolt. Aug 23, 2015

I thought this route was tricky. The hands and feet are all there at 5.9, but you really have to keep your cool and hunt around for just the right move most of the way up, since there's a lot of smooth slopey rock hiding the good holds.

Also, the start might be damn dangerous for a short person. You scramble up easy 5th Class to a ledge, but if you can't clip the first bolt from the ledge, it takes a bouldery move or two to make the clip. I'm 5'7 and had to make a sketchy move before I could make the clip.

I would not recommend this line for a new leader or someone just breaking into 5.9. Sundowning (next bolt line to the left) felt much more casual if you use the big jugs on the left. Aug 19, 2018
Harder than Sundowning. Aug 19, 2018
