Description

A fun journey up some interesting holds.

Location

The route is on the left end of the lower upper wall (Crackin' the Cherry, Muy Macho, etc...). Locate a large detached pillar. First route to the right of the pillar is a newer, dirty 5.10. Red Chili is the second route to the right of the pillar.

Protection

Bolts.

10.17.17 "Red Chili" has its own anchor now directly above the route. That funky route just to the lookers left got bolts added for a direct (safer) start and bolts added for a direct (safer) finish, making it a quality climbing experience. The 3 bolts placed by an unknown person in the middle section were left in place. 5.10b. Oct 18, 2017

Mostly 5.9, but a couple5.10 slabby/thin moves above first bolt. Enjoyable. Aug 26, 2014

The recent guide book of this area lists this route as a 5.9, but the start has become so polished, the current 10a rating on Mountain Project is more appropriate. Once you reach the second bolt, it's a cruise to the finish. Aug 16, 2014

Don't confuse this one with the funky thing on the left (Log Jammin?). Between the first and second bolts is by far the hardest part, but the rest is fairly jug-y and obvious with good protection. 8 bolts to 2 cold shuts. Sep 17, 2012
