Somewhat of a 5.11 testpiece for the Mammoth Area. Crux is right above the first bolt, and through the second bolt. Climb a steep, technical bulge, that might require a somewhat dynamic move (it did for me being 5'7) for two bolts. The route then eases over to a slab above this, which serves as a rest after the crux. From there, the route continues up for 8 more bolts with a few tricky 5.10 sections. Lower off.


10 bolts to cold shuts


Did this route the other day. Really nice climbing. Definitely a candidate for some bolt replacement down low. Rusty, loose bolts on pretty severe moves...they are probably the original bolts and have obviously seen a lot of action.

Excellent route. Aug 7, 2013

I did this route a few years ago and remember the second bolt being a little manky. Really fun route though. May 14, 2009

I found clipping the second bolt from below fairly hard. Much easier to go for the jug and clip the bolt once you have the jug. Jan 16, 2007

Another great route of the area. Once past the bouldery start it's pretty much a cruise to the top, which makes this a good candidate for those breaking into the grade. Oct 25, 2006
