Description

If this route were 3 degrees less overhanging, it would be 5.8! If the holds were not all huge ladder rungs, it would be 5.12! The combination of these two things conspiring on this little stretch of real estate results in a classic Pass jug haul. Short, vertical and easy (5.7) run out section leads to super steep & fun climbing. You will not believe how good every hold is!

Location

Look for a lot of chalk! This is the 3rd route (from left) on the Storm Jumper Wall.

Protection

5 bolts. Chain anchor.

The CRUX HOLD BROKE!!!! I have climbed this route dozens of times and fortunately was cleaning the route on top rope when this hold broke. It is a clipping hold for the 4th bolt. There is another hold you can clip off; however, it will be a bit more strenuous and will leave you with a larger move afterwards to reach then next set of holds. I think it is fortunate for all of us that it broke on toprope rather than with slack in your teeth on lead! I did lower and climb through the section again to see how much harder it seemed, and I think it gives it another letter for sure, solidifying the grade at 10d or possibly up to an 11a! I feel like history was made yesterday as this route was changed forever. I do not think it affects the safety or quality of the route, only the grade. Ciao. Aug 22, 2016

This is a really, really good route. One of the best I've done at The Pass.

I do think the moves getting up to and clipped to the first bolt are in fact 5.7, albeit devious, slippery, insecure 5.7. A stick clip is certainly not a bad idea. Immediately after clipping the first bolt, I agree that the final moves up the slab below the overhang are indeed 5.9+. Aug 3, 2015

Great route. Agree that the bottom is not 5.7, more like 5.9/10a.

If you climb at the grade, get all over this thing! Jul 14, 2015

SO MUCH FUN. Jul 8, 2013
If you can climb 5.10, get on this thing. It's awesome. Jun 7, 2013
The 5.7 unprotected runout to the first bolt felt more like committing 5.9. A stick clip is highly recommended. Otherwise this is a well bolted and fun climb worth doing. Jun 7, 2012
