Description

This popular climb goes to the first set of three anchors. The complete Youth continues with 5.12c climbing to either of the upper two anchors. As it is, climbing to the first set of anchor is quality and enjoyable.

Begin with engaging and slightly runout climbing (5.9) past the first couple of bolts on steep, slightly less than vertical terrain. Above, well-protected face climbing leads to a horizontal break where the steep, overhanging climbing begins. Navigate the first bulge on big holds, and continue above for a forearm-inducing pump on big jugs to the anchor.

Location

Uphill of Kor's Corner, this route is furthest left on the wall before reaching the big cave amphitheater and the approach to the upper climbs of The Long Haul and Honk in the Tunnel.

Protection

8 (10? 13?) bolts and anchor.

Great route, a little runout down lower as described. Sep 23, 2011

Phenomenal line. Can anyone comment on the bolt placements for bolts 1, 2 and 3? It seems like the second bolt could be moved a bit lower and to the right. May 3, 2014

It is 10 bolts not 8. When you reach the rest that turns from slab to overhanging climbing, the right bolts will take you to the anchor. The left line must be the 12c. Jul 29, 2015

I think there are actually 12 or 13 bolts now. I didn't count exactly, but I'm pretty sure there are 9 on the lower half, and 4 on the upper half (once it becomes overhanging). It did not feel runout at all to me. I skipped a bolt that felt a little awkwardly placed 2 feet right of the rest of the bolts (at the 6th-ish bolt) and still was only PG-13. Regardless, it's an excellent route! Apr 24, 2017
