Climb the face just left of Freakshow. Tricky layback crux at the 2nd bolt leads to 80' of easier fun climbing to the anchor.


10 bolts, chain anchors.

Jack, it's 10 bolts to the chains.

This route provides an interesting and tricky two move wonder at the layback section. Coming up to it I tried it as a pinch first and realized quickly that wouldn't work. Upper headwall is fun climbing using lots of plates & edges. 4 bolts on lower section of route through bowl then 6 bolts to top.

Interesting moves down low and then some nice pulls up to the top on the fake headwall. Sep 24, 2007

In 2 years it seems that 400 pounds of rubble have come off this route. Key holds are now missing, mid section is complete shale and upper headwall plates look like they're going to sail down to your belayer like a frisbee.

What once was a multi-star 10a route now gets a bomb. Climb at your own risk.

I thought this route was great fun. Interesting moves low with very cool lie back move on a sloping edge to a high left pocket where you can secure a good clipping position. The route changes character after the fourth bolt and follows positive holds to the anchors.

As for the damage of the rock, I can't attest to how it looked years ago but can only iterate that it's current condition feels perfectly climbable and enjoyable. May 24, 2013

My comments are even making me laugh. Okay, fast forward 7 years.... has me bumping this from a total sh*tbomb to a single star which is funny that's where it had started. The layback move and a few others are kinda interesting. Plus it gets a bonus for being long. Still not as good as others on the formation but maybe, worth warming up on. If you can call frozen hands warm. Jan 29, 2016

Don't be put off by these comments. At least try it for yourself and see. The crux is interesting and well protected, followed by sustained 5.8ish climbing after a ledge all the way to the top. I thought it was actually a pretty fun route. Nov 21, 2017
