Description

Easy face (5.3?) with 3 closely spaced bolts to a ledge. A few final moves move past a bulge, protected by a fourth bolt that comprises the crux (5.5?). These final moves are fun and interesting once you get the sequence down and make this short route somewhat worth doing.

Location

Route is 10 ft left of Instant Replay.

Protection

4 bolts to a fixed anchor.

The crux move from the ledge up to anchor varies from 5.6 to 5.8+, depending on your height. If you're 6'3", this is spot-on easy -- if 5'4", tough moves indeed. The initial face to the ledge is 5.4-5. Know as 'Nice Guys..." as noted by Ebb. If you've got newbies with you for a day, this (well, maybe not the crux) and Lollypop are good appetizers.

I found this route on another climbing site. That site has this route named "Nice Guys Finish Last," and gives it an overall rating of 5.8 (probably more accurate given the difficult crux move at the top). Jun 30, 2008

Agree. Bottom 4/5's or so is fun (but short). The crux move at the boulder is awkward and frustrating. Seems much more difficult than 5.5 (crux move only) Jun 25, 2008

Um... not a fan. First 3 bolts are nice and easy - and fun. But, then you find yourself on a big ledge with a tall boulder between you and the chain anchors. Akward move... for me, I admit, more of a sad squirmy struggle, over the top. Jun 17, 2008
