Sport route located on the south side (left end) of the Holiday Block, almost at the arete.


Start down and right from a large boulder and boulder up to the high first bolt.


5 bolts, chains.

It should be noted, in the description preferably, that this is a retro-bolt that is basically indistiguishable from an existing trad route which was done without consulting the FA. It never should have been bolted.

The same thing happened with Tales From the Hard Side on this same wall, put up trad with some preplaced gear, and then retrobolted, again without consulting the FA, afaik. Aug 28, 2008

Was on this about a month ago and noticed that the right anchor bolt was a bit wobbly (didn't have a wrench with us). Feb 27, 2013
Wow, this is an excellent route! One of the only routes I've done over and over just because it's so much fun. There are a lot of hidden holds. Go out onto the arete near the top for the best flow! Dec 3, 2015

Really fun route, just stay left of the arete and you will find holds in just the right places. Jan 18, 2016
