Slightly overhanging cruxes are in several places along the route. The rock quality is good but since it follows a natural drainage beware of gravely ledges. Bring a helmet and you are fine. The mental crux is right at the top.


Pitch one starts on Drivers Test, clip the anchor and keep going past 2 bolts to the ledge. Once on top you can rappel the route with a 60m rope or walk off.


Pitch 1: 11 Bolts to Ring Anchors.
Pitch 2: 9 Bolts to Ring Anchors.
Pitch 3: 7 Bolts to Ring Anchors.

As always for this area it is useful to have some runners to help with rope drag. And a helmet is a good idea no matter where you climb.


Doesn't seem to matter which route you choose for the first pitch, but beware of taking one of the left routes as you'll most likely send large rocks down toward your partner as you scramble for the bottom of the second pitch. Second pitch is more solid, however it turns into a 5.6 near the middle. There is a small fun roof near the top. The third pitch isn't a 5.9 (maybe 5.7), and there didn't seem to be any pattern to the placement of the bolts. The third pitch isn't worth the effort unless you plan on walking off. Some vegetation in the way. Jul 25, 2008

I thought this route was great! I agree that nothing on the climb felt like 5.9. I actually think that the starting moves on Driver's Test are the crux of the whole route, with the start of the second pitch being the same kind of thing but with better holds. The third pitch felt like 5.7. I actually liked this route more than Cosmic Space Dust Lazers. There wasn't much loose rock and most of the holds felt pretty solid. Nice!

EDIT: Went back and climbed it again on August 22, 2009, and thought the first two pitches were 5.8 and the third was 5.7. I can't tell if I think the first or second pitch is harder. Aug 20, 2009

I agree with T-Hig. I thought this route was great, some really sick jugs, and a huge ledge on pitch 3 or three, plus the weird tooth that stick outs on pitch 2 (which should be used creatively). I also agree that the crux is of the whole climb is basically the first move of the first pitch, which is pretty bouldery. Everything else is really obvious, pretty juggy, really fun. Definitely a three star climb, I highly recommend it. Aug 20, 2009
I can't decide what this is rated...
I felt like pitch 2 was the crux. But whichever pitch is the crux, both are over quick. I thought the 3rd pitch was the most interesting though. Bring slings as the route moves back and forth a bit here and there. Aug 23, 2009

Awesome route. It is much cleaner than its reputation tells. Probably due to traffic over time. This wall has so many long moderate climbs that it is a real blast. Just don't climb it with some one beneath you, as there is a little 'cleaning' still on going. Jul 28, 2010

My climbing ability straddles the line between beginner and intermediate, and I definitely felt like the first move of Driver's Test was, by far, the crux of the whole climb. Slopey friction holds and sparse edges for your feet make the first move really challenging for someone like me who's just starting out. I lead the 2nd pitch and felt like it was much easier than the first move of the first pitch, although the 2nd pitch was more sustained in it's difficulty. Final move of the 3rd pitch is super fun too, and takes a little bit of thinking as you're looking into the crack system. Very awesome climb. Three stars for me. Jun 29, 2011
Thought i would spread the word in hopes of no one getting hurt: did this line today, 7/13/13 (really fun, laid back route). On pitch 2, just as you traverse left to gain the first bolt, the first white, enticing jug, one that you no doubt want to grab, is extremely loose. I grabbed it and watched it crack and almost pulled it off the wall. I bumped in time, but no doubt that next person who pulls on it will take a fall. Be careful. Jul 13, 2013
