This route starts about 10 feet left of the 105869658 and shares an anchor with that route as well. The crux came between the 3rd, 4th, and 5th bolt and the rest of the route seemed to be much easier, 5.6 maybe. The route trends generally up and right, gaining the same ledge as the route on its right. It provides a great chance to practice precise footwork.


7 quickdraws.

Mostly 5.7 climbing with a very thin move if you follow the bolt line. Oct 16, 2016

Can an administrator change the route name? It is called Dave Bell Memorial, 5.9, in the latest book.
Thanks! Dec 29, 2013

I think, if you follow the bolt line, 5.10a, 2 thin moves, 5.9 if you go to the right, about 2ft. Aug 20, 2013

It's height-dependent, Kirk, I think 2 moves just after the 4th bolt (or 5th -- it's an obvious section). Some will show up with a .10a. Anyone else, don't wuss out by moving to the right. A good route to get your lead-head into the friction game. Difficult to onsight.

Also note, with the exception of the eyebolt line (P1 of Central Corner, a protected slab climb), these routes don't continue (with protection) on to the upper slab. Oct 5, 2006

I am not too sure about the rating for this route, this is my best guess. If anyone else has climbed the route and can provide a more accurate rating plese let me know. Thanks
