This somewhat runout friction route climbs past two widely spaced bolts with a tricky move at the bottom and another just past the last bolt. Supplemental protection may be found with small wires to help lessen the runouts.


2 bolts (3/8"), shared anchors with Sawdust and Peanut Shells


This would be a classic intro slab route if even remotely well protected. Mar 21, 2011

Bring a set of smaller nuts too; you can protect two cracks along the way. The patina on this is great, and the runout up top is exciting. A fun friction climb. Jan 22, 2008
