Cruise up an overhanging juggy water-streak and work up and right to some thin moves. The crux is above the third bolt. A decent warm up for the area.


This route is located on the east face of The 45-Degree Boulder right to the left of Dragonslayer


4 bolts to a 2 bolt lowering station. Because the route traverses right so much the second bolt has a brown cable draw on it to facilitate cleaning. To use this, while cleaning the draws on the way down, the lowering-leader simply clips her/his end of the rope into it and lowers straight down to the first bolt to get the draw off of it. No big swing to the right needed.

Fun route. Moderate up to the 3rd bolt, one harder move, then easier climbing after the 4th bolt to the anchors. More sustained at 10d-ish if you stay in the middle of the face (right) when going from the 3rd bolt on. Aug 25, 2007
I bolted this route with my wife Melissa after getting rained out of El Rito, NM. Jul 24, 2008

Someone moved the 2nd bolt to a better location in the last few weeks; the clip is no longer weird. Oct 5, 2016

Luke did. He also added a bolt to Garbageboy. Oct 6, 2016
Needed to be done. Sorry it took 20 years to fix my mistake. Dec 5, 2016

Fun short route with the crux between bolts 3 and 4 (well protected after clipping 3rd bolt). Good combination of finesse and balance to cruise through the crux followed by some easy moves to the anchors. Dec 21, 2017
