Description

Good climbing on big holds leads to a fun, "reachy" set of moves on good holds on the high quality face. This route may be hard for a 5.9+, particularly if you're shorter. Don't be alarmed by the name as the route is clean and enjoyable. The name comes from a rather memorable bout with loose rock at the top of the cliff while establishing this climb and Slice and Dice.

Location

This is the second route from the left on the right side of the Front Porch (the seventh total route from the left). Scramble up from Cleanup Hitter along the base of the wall to a reinforced ledge that serves as the base for Slice and Dice and Choss Warfare, just to the right.

Protection

5 bolts and two-bolt chain anchor.

Easier with a long reach, jam a hand in the pod and reach up for a good hold. I think it is a 10a move. May 1, 2008

In reference to this comment that I saw: "Is that hand jam pod manufactured? never seen a feature like that before."

No hold was manufactured, and I can't remember the hold you're talking about, because it's been a while since I've been on this route. I'm just guessing it was a result of the unique rock at the Narrows. It tends to plate, and some is solid and other stuff just falls out, particularly while cleaning. Chunks will fall out, sometimes leaving decent holds.

So, just wanted to be clear, nothing is manufactured. Jun 3, 2013

The weird circular hold in question is the current nesting spot of a sparrow. I fist jammed pretty deep only to see momma bird starting at me when I lowered. I felt really bad, because I had to be inches away from the nest. Jun 28, 2017
