DescriptionSuburban is more of a variation than a full route. It climbs the first seven bolts of Urban Surfer (5.13d), hence the name, to a big knee bar rest.
The climbing gets progressively harder until the crux sequence, a powerful and very awkward reach to a crimp, at the sixth bolt. A right kneepad is helpful for resting before the crux.
Suburban is perhaps the most popular 5.13 on the cliff, as the moves are fun, not too heinous, and easy to work. It even finishes at a logical spot, a no hands rest, so it doesn't really feel as contrived as it might.
