Description [Suggest Change]

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 [Suggest Change]

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 [Suggest Change]

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
