R.O.U.S. is a great late afternoon winter climb due its brown rock and sun exposure. Follow 4 bolts up a small spire with a handful of tricky moves and funky positions. Short and sweet....


R.O.U.S. climbs the SW face of the small spire at the base of the cliffs.


Bolts, maybe a medium nut up high....

Seemed like 5.8 if you use the left arete at the top. It's a #6 Rock. Apr 22, 2012
To get to this climb, hang an uphill-right just before the outcropping which juts out towards the road (it has a "pleated" appearance with a vertical cleft in the center). There are some boulders to clamber over in order to reach the belay stance. Look for a fallen, twisted tree trunk. Dec 16, 2010
