Can you say vertical jug climbing? This route follows the orange and purple streaks up the vertical wall left of Fahter and Son.

This route is very popular and for good reason.

Despite the easy grade it can seem heady to lead and there is the element of loose rock involved on this route.

It's worth the walk in though, the moves are fantastic and the route unforgettable for beginners.


Look left from Father and Son to the obvious vertical face just past an overhanging area. Best to rappel from the anchors.


Bolts, bolted anchors.

Fun route, led on gear. A couple cams finger to hand size and some small stoppers protects it well. As of 5/22/11 the bolts aren't chopped but protects well with gear so I didn't use them. May 23, 2011

Climbed it early this season, and it was 100% worth the hike. Easily one of the most fun moderates we hit the entire trip. Great views, lots of exposure, solid climbing, and un-chopped bolts. Next trip will be on all gear to make it even more interesting. May 1, 2012

This is, hands down, my favorite route I've climbed to date. Juggy hold after Juggy hold, yet tall enough that there was a real sense of accomplishment after finishing it. Best route ever!! May 7, 2012
Lead it on gear. Bolts have not been chopped in a while. This is another good one for the beginning leader, if they get scared or worry about thier gear placement they can just clip a bolt. Expect to see it crowded on the weekends. Jul 11, 2012

Fun climb. If you are planning on cruising this line, be prepared to wait for other groups. Makes for an excellent night climb. Sep 28, 2015
Very fun, thought it would be to wet to climb after waiting out a rain storm at Largo Linda's this morning. But it was dry as a bone and no one else at the wall at all. Just saw a few (4) copperheads basking on the sun at the base of father and son and Kentucky pin striping. Jun 5, 2016

Saw a copperhead sticking his head up between two small boulders on the ground. Also, there is a good sized flake around the forth bolt that's ready to go. The group before us pointed it out and it was also marked with a chalk X. Probably needs a more permanent solution. Aug 10, 2017

For an added challenge, lead this using only a rack of slings to tie off and thread the natural features. It was a good time. May 17, 2018

Straight forward, pure fun. The approach may be harder than the climb. Great views around sunset! Jun 22, 2018

I got to the top and was so mad when I realized I was at the anchors! Wish I could have kept going forever! Oct 24, 2018
