Description

This route climbs the broken crack system through the obvious bulge. Rosebush starts out really melow at around 5.6 and climbs broken terrain, past a fixed nut. Work your way under the bulge, place a couple cams and pull bulge/roof while placing a cam during or just before crux. After this, the climb mellows significantly and climbs another 30 feet to anchors on the right.

Location

Walk up the approach trail to practice rock. When the trail splits, take a couple paces to the right and you will be standing under the route.

Protection

Cams .4-3 camalot.
Draws 6-8
Bolted anchor

I highly recommend this route. Place some good gear at the bottom of the roof and just pull it until easy again. Quick and short crux. Jun 28, 2010

I missed the fixed nut, if it's still there. The start seemed more like 5.8 to me, and I didn't find a decent gear placement until the start of the crack system leading into the room (off-widths might've fixed that), which left me with a ~30ft runout off the deck. Either way, super fun route and no harder than the 5.9 it's rated - great route for an almost-in-town crag! Jun 10, 2015
