Description

A pleasant outing on fairly good-quality quartzite. Starts from a copse of scrub oak, climbs over a small overhang past the first bolt, and then continues more-or-less straight up on lower-angled terrain with the occasional vertical section. Holds abound, and there is some fun, juggy, side-pulling to be had.

Equipped by Christian Knight.

Location

The second-from-the-left bolted route on the lower tier of Layer Cake.

Protection

7 bolts, hangers-and-rings anchor (shared with Knuckle Dragger, to the left).

The start can be tough but if you can get your hands on the ledge above then you're good to go. There was some rope drag from bolts 1 through 3. Jan 22, 2016

Just did this one again. A ton of fun. Barely harder than knuckle dragger with huge jugs and lots of great holds. That giant deep flake around the middle is one of my favorite holds. Aug 28, 2009

Another fun one. Pretty much the same thing as Knuckle Dragger (and that's not a bad thing), just maybe a tiny bit harder. There are some really perfect jugs on this. Aug 19, 2009

This climb is lots of fun, best described as a fun "jaunt" up the rock. Just know that the anchor bolts at the top are across a long ledge and the belay position vis a vis the climb is not ideal. Better to rap down than lower, I think. It'll save your rope. Apr 28, 2009
