Outstanding Foster Falls test piece at the grade. Moderate 5.11 climbing leads to one distinct dyno (a static move for climbers over 6 ft) crux with strenuous climbing until you reach the chain anchor.


On the right side of the Right Bunker.


Six Bolts to a chain anchor

Replaced the runner on the second bolt last weekend, old one was in pretty bad shape. The quick link on the bolt protecting the dyno won't hold many more whips, it's been sawed in half by the bolt hanger! Didn't have the time to replace the link but left a quick draw there. Nov 12, 2017

Fun circus route. Just a thought on the grade...and this is just my opinion. Very soft 12a. If you figure out the bottom it's not very hard. The "jump" move is not very tricky if you can figure out how to match on slopers. The finish is the only real climbing. So 5.11 to sit down rest, to V2 to a good shake to a V3 harder than 12a, almost put 11d but the anchor clip is a bit pumpy. Bottled Up Warrior is much harder than this, especially if you are tall.

soft for the grade, one move wonder, if your tall its 11b. Aug 22, 2014
The first perma draw needs replacing if someone can let the appropriate people know. The pin/axle holding the gate can and will back out and the cable is fraying from constant rubbing. May 26, 2014

I believe the recent perma-draw work was done by the Action Fund. Oct 11, 2012

Fun route, but no better than 2 stars. Probably 12A. Jul 9, 2008

12a and the worst route in the right bunker. I can only assume its popularity is due to the crazy soft grade that people want to give this route. Abacus and Bottled Up Warrior are so much better and only 30 feet away. Feb 8, 2008

Ethnic is solid 12b. The 'dyno' is a trick move that is maybe V1. The redpoint crux is usually clipping the chains.

As of 19May2007 both anchor biners are new. May 21, 2007

I noticed that bolt needs it nut tightened. Maybe a glue in would be better. Yes the consequences of that bolt failing would be about as bad as it gets Mar 24, 2007
DCA gives this a 12b/c, but it may be harder since a block at the anchor fell off a few years ago. I think it's solid c.

For me, crux was making the anchor clip.

Could use bolt replacement on crux "spinner". The consequences of that bolt failing could be very dire. Feb 28, 2007
