Description

This is a nice mixed bolt and gear route. There are a few places where you have to climb a bit above your gear, but it is all pretty reasonable. Nice rock with some good steep climbing near the end.

Location

Just right of Adolescent Homosexual.

Protection

Bring a set of nuts and cams.

I'd have to append a seriousness rating to this one as there are a few places on the slab where you'd almost certainly deck on a fall. The gear is spaced out and tiny in often flaring cracks. However the climbing isn't too difficult here and the gear is plenty adequate for both cruxes.

Bring some microcams and go for it. Aug 6, 2012
I can't remember if the first lead was by Stroud or me. I always thought this was a cool, serious lead where "Don't Fall" applied. A bolt down low off the ledge and then opposing nuts in the horizontals. This route was a test of your gear-placing skills. Jun 10, 2018
