Starts on the ledge. Sustained 5.9 climbing with a slight bulge at top (could be considered the crux).


Starts at the leftmost rap station on top of the ledge, to the right of Stouthearted.


10 bolts, but some take a 1" CD for a slightly run-out section. **NOTE: This route is 35m if you don't rap or downclimb from the ledge.**

New grading is 5.10a - it's gone from 5.10a in the original guide, to 5.9, and now back to 5.10a. A great climb to finish a weekend on - looking South over the wineries to the lake, thinking about a swim and a cold bevvie. Best done with a top belay to share it with your partner. Then you can rap or walk off (North).

Only PG13 if you don't sink a cam at mid-height. Jul 28, 2010

Graded as 5.10a in book. I don’t see the difference in level of difficulty between this and Stouthearted. They are very similar. Need to scramble up the ledge to get to the start. Further up it’s really run out between 2 bolt for about 15 feet, which may scare the 10- leader. A bird sat next to me and spooked me when it took off. Adrenaline rush for the next few bolts after that. (Maybe that's why it felt like a 10a?). There’s a small roof feature that you don’t really use except an edge on the right to push off of, just go left and avoid the “x.” Jugs up from there. Sep 12, 2018

you definitely want to bring an off-fingers to thin hand sized cam to plug in at the ledge/crack around 2/3's height. without this piece i would call it R-rated. the last bolt is a ways below the ledge and the moves getting off the ledge to the next bolts are on thin holds that look like they could break. if you fell here you would probably get flipped by the ledge and go for a 30 foot head first whipper. i thought the location of the bolt off the ledge was really poorly thought out...
