Description

Great route with neat entry moves. Starts up incipient finger crack then fun featured moves up bolt line to chain anchor.

Watch lowering of cord from anchor and or pulling rope after route as it has potential to get stuck in crack to left.

Location

Route directly right of mid-crag pinnacle. Easily identifiable by rock face to left of finger crack. SCSG 3rd edition topo route 764 - description 765.

Protection

7 bolts to chains

This is the best moderate line on Boyscout, IMHO. There are several interesting ways to solve the start/crux and it is the most sustained moderate on this wall and truest to its rating. Mar 16, 2009
I concur with Bill. Just to note, there is a nice 2' x 3' ledge just below the rap chains. I set up a belay station and practiced bringing up a second (preparing for multi-pitch) ... great place to try it, but highly recommend using a redirected belay. Nov 23, 2009

Great crux at the beginning. Our group solved it in two different ways. Tons of jugs all the way up. This as an awesome spot for climbers beginning to lead. Jan 30, 2011

For some reason, Southern California Sport Climbing guide rated this .10a. I agree with the .9 rating... Aug 29, 2011

This is a great route and well worth your time. One note: in the Mayr guide, it shows this route sharing an anchor with "Cool Enough." In fact, it has its own independent anchor up and to the left, which is much better positioned for lowering/cleaning. May 1, 2016

Before I climbed this route, a few people told me the rope has a tendency to go into the crack on left when you're pulling it. Once you're down on the ground you can flick the rope over to the right side of a bulge that's just below the anchor bolts. That way, when you pull the rope it stays fully clear of the crack.
