Seasonal Closure Details


Just left of Dozer Rage lies an even more bouldery and less continuous route. Follow two bolts traversing left into the jug on Dozer Rage and make a huge move over the lip of the roof where a 3rd bolt awaits you. Stand up over the roof, passing a 4th bolt and you're done.


4 bolts to chains.

Different, but certainly no harder than Blue Flame, IMO. I really thought no harder than 11c. Not trying to be a tough guy and downgrade a full number grade, but you reach from a jug to a decent sloper, lock in the bomber heelhook and reach to a decent to poor hold. Then bump to a jug. I warmed up on this route, and I legitimately had more difficulty on The Harder They Come than this thing. Perhaps it's a size thing. I'm tall (but overhangs and roofs are my biggest weakness), and I have fat fingers (so The Harder They Come was tough to get my tips in - but I'm also best at cracks). Regardless, I thought it was as fun as anything else at this wall even with all the sharing of common ground. Jun 20, 2017

First ascent: Mark Rolofson on August 26, 2004. I repeated the climb months to a year later. I haven't been back in over a decade, so I won't insist that the grade I gave it of 5.12b/c is correct. It definitely felt harder than Blue Flame or The Harder They Come. It is short, but I find it hard to believe this route is only 5.11 & not at least 5.12a/b. Jul 16, 2017
