This climb is fun. There is no real crux just solid 5.10 climbing from the moment you start until the last move up to the anchors.

The climbing is mainly on small flakes, but it is mixed in with some stemming halfway up.


Just left of Burning Desire (5.12c)


11 bolts, 2 ring anchor

Still a bit crispy in spots, but fairly long with interesting moves. No real crux, as noted, but if pumped the last few moves to the anchors can be a problem. Jan 22, 2007

My first ever climb at Riverside Quarry. Found this to be a terrific warm-up since it is relatively long, moderate, consistent, and yet populated with two or three good rest spots. Great Climb! Jun 8, 2009

I think right at the 2nd to the last bolt is the crux for people that are 5'5 or shorter, getting the jug about it requires a stemming move. And yes if you are pump getting to the anchors is tough Mar 17, 2010

Fun, fun route. Pumpy at end. Moves are not that hard. Rating is more for a sustained, pumpy finish. Mar 31, 2012

Really enjoyable climb. Nice line, good holds. Glued in holds abound but that doesnt make it bad! Jul 2, 2012
A large suit case size chunk of rock was recently removed from the left side of the "crux" stem because it was loose which changes the sequence. Still a great route! Mar 7, 2013

Great fun! Call them cruxes or not, but I think the climbing off the ground to the second bolt and the last 2-3 moves before the anchor are distinctly more difficult than the middle 80' of the climb. Jun 25, 2017
