Description

The far left route at the wall, just left of the left gully, Supreme Onion goes up the slightly over hanging often wet wall. There are a few tricky moves at about 2/3 of the way up the route, as the route heads right before going straight up to the top. A good rest can be gained near the crux.

People who don't figure out the beta say the route sucks. Those who figure it out say it's fun. Which one are you?

The only down side to this one in my mind is the wetness. Bummer.

Location

The far left route at the wall, just left of the left gully.

Protection

4 bolts. Some people like to put a cam in before getting to the second bolt. I've never noticed a need for it, but it's there if you want it. Quick clips I believe.

Installed ss rap rings on 9/17/16. This route is pretty good, not sure why it only gets 2 stars... Great warmup for some of the harder stuff in the area. Also, there are 5 bolts on this route now. Sep 19, 2016
No quick clips as of 7/23/2016. Just giant eyebolts to rap off of. Jul 26, 2016

So true that this one is often wet. I think it's not that hard for a 5.11a.
Didn't really find the famous crux. It felt consistent from the bottom to the top.
If you start at this grade and are good on good crimps, this one's for you. Feb 19, 2014

If this route is dry, climb it! It is fun, techy but not too crimpy. Best enjoyed when there is little or no chalk on the climb; gets one looking and thinking of how to get past the crux. Jul 30, 2010
