Description

Very aesthetic rock. Looks like the work of a sculptor. There is a bolt to the right that appears to be an orphan. There are some bolts that diagonal up to the left that appear to be a 5.9 variation, mentioned in Mayr's guidebook.

Location

It's the only 5.7 on the wall and goes up just left of a groove.

Protection

8 bolts, chain anchors (shared with 72 Hour Hold )

The traverse route is Indirect Action.
8 bolts, chain anchors.

2 bolts then traverse left through three more bolts. Continue left and up (Indirect Action) or go the right bolt line (72 Hour Hold). Both variations have 8 total bolts. They are both a PITA to clean, but a lot of fun.

The route everyone is talking about (4 bolts straight up) is Working Men R Pissed. It IS a 5.9. Mar 9, 2016

This is my favorite easy climb at NJC. The aesthetics of the rock makes this one worth doing, even if you climb 5.12. Fun climbing doesn't hurt too! Nov 10, 2012

I did this onsight and went up the left close to the 5.12, definately felt more 5.9 than 5.7. Its cool that you can climb two different routes on the same bolt line for sure. Oct 8, 2012
