Description

A harder start to old spice. A short, steep slab with three bolts. Join old spice after 25'. The hard section is quite safe, but this route shares the runout 5.6 upper section of old spice.

Location

The steep wall, just to the right of old spice.

Protection

Three bolts, plus small gear for the upper section. Rappel off of a chain anchor.

Once meeting up with Old Spice, runout can get long quick. Didn't realize until I lowered back down that the runout i developed before placing some pro would have had me hitting the ground. Dec 5, 2011
The orig. route was only the 1st 2 bolts at 10a (johnny says 5.8). Step left after the 2nd bolt. 3rd bolt added to the top keeps the climbing on the steep face more in the center. Most say around 10c-d.
Steep face is well protected, slab above is not. Mar 28, 2012

Staying right of 3rd bolt felt 5.10c/d and definitely harder than obscure object. Sep 8, 2018
