Description

This climb follows a series of chipped 2-3 finger pockets up an overhanging wall. It is very pumpy and very fun. I highly recommend you climb this route, even though it is fabricated you will be thoroughly thrashed by the top.

Location

The Taboo area is the farthest South (right) portion of the wall. Original Sin is to the left of the spray painted mushroom. climb up and onto a ledge that is about 20 feet up. there are bolts to set up belays from. There are a few climbs that start on this ledge, Original Sin is the last route on the ledge (to the right)

Protection

7 bolts to ring anchors

I'm giving this an extra star for the effort it took to drill out those massive jugs. Jun 18, 2015

short and fun. Soft for Quarry 11b--maybe more like 11a. Dec 21, 2013

good holds with big powerful moves Feb 19, 2012
the first ascent date is incorrect,
while i hung in slings covered in drill dust and in between police chases on the road at the base the radio announced kobains body had been found

this was a fanstastic place back then before the cops were instructed to keep it tame for the sport climbers who are uncomfortable with the domestical realities of unrestrained capitalism Jul 3, 2008

The pockets were drilled. The holds are mostly jugs with a sloper or a small pocket thrown in every few moves. Don't go looking for this climb however it is a great warmup for the other routes in the area. Nov 26, 2007

Fun climbing on "interesting features" makes this sinfully enjoyable, and while it's a little on the short side it makes a good warm-up for the harder routes nearby. Jan 3, 2007
