Description

This is a fun, inviting, slightly pumpy route which ascends a few bulging tiers. The route is described as reachy in the guidebook.

Start on slightly loose rock. Clip a bolt. Move up over a set of bulges angling left past a pin. The crux involves a key left side pull near the 3rd bolt. Clip another bolt.

Per Vlad S: the only thing reachy about this climb are its clipping positions. The first as well as the last bolt before the runout are totally off route. I recommend skipping the latter one, since it's only 2 feet above another bolt, and the clipping hold is now gone. Ultimately, that bolt should be moved 3 feet left.

Location

This is on the left side of the north face of the Discovery Wall.

Per Vlad S: don't pull the rope straight down after leading, since it's impossible to miss the poison oak at the base. It is much safer to for the last person up to follow and rap over to the left.

Protection

4 bolts, 1 pin, 2 bolt anchor.

To be honest, this route should be re-engineered. The first bolt is way to far right. The bolt above the crux is now in the middle of the crux since some holds broke, and it's too far right anyway - move it left and up. Nov 28, 2016

The most reachy aspect of this climb are its clipping positions. The first as well as the last bolt before the runout are totally off route. While the fist bolt is easy to clip with a runner, I recommend skipping the latter one, since it's only 2 feet above another bolt, and the clipping hold is now gone. Ultimately, that bolt should be moved 3 feet left. I also wouldn't pull the rope straight down after leading, since it's impossible to miss the poison oak at the base. Much safer to for the last person up to follow and rap over to the left. Apr 25, 2016
