great warm-up and possibly the only warm-up in this area. good quality to boot!


to the right of Stemmin' Ms, climb up the pillar (left side) to access high first bolt.


4 or 5 bolts + chains

High Five feels like a 10 in places, but my guess is that after I've climbed it a few times, I'll agree it's a solid 9. There's a neat variety of hand-holds, from crimps and jugs to tiny single-finger pockets (which you will probably need to use to stand up on the first low mantle). A fun route that's worth trying.

Impeccable rock, quite unlike most Vantage moderates. Plug in a 3-4" cam if you want pro before the first bolt. Apr 4, 2016

The guidebook has this as a 5.8 which might be a bit of a sandbag.....definitely not 5.10 movement in my opinion though. Ridin' Sidesaddle just to the right is a solid 5.9 and this climb is definitely easier than that. The climbing is very different from most Vantage jug hauls and definitely worth doing! Sep 24, 2016

Ran some laps on this while it was slightly wet (had been snowing). I did feel like it was a tad harder than other vantage 5.8 routes, but it's certainly not anything in the 10 range. If you're just climbing it hips square to the wall it likely seems harder.

More interesting moves than most of the easier vantage sport, sadly it's just not long enough to get more than 2 stars from me. Feb 20, 2017
