Description

This is an awesome layback climb up a right facing corner with finger sized gear. The climbing is fairly sustained, but a few small feet allow for rests and oportunities to place gear.

There is a fun corner to the right that you can TR from the anchors. That corner, PBR, checks in at around 5.10.

Location

This is the obvious right facing corner on the right side of the cliff.

Rappel with 1 rope from 2 bolt anchor

Protection

Protection to 0.5 camalot, with extras in the blue and yellow tcu size. There is a good 2 bolt anchor at the top.

The Cummins topo lists it as 5.10A, which I would agree it is harder, more sustained than Godzilla.

The upper half is the business with a 20' section of yellow/orange TCU or .3 & .4 camolots with limited feet. The last 15' eases off to the anchors. Oct 20, 2013

Great climb! Thanks to those who have cleaned these routes! I can imagine without enough traffic (which I'm pretty sure they don't get), these climbs get pretty dirty. Aug 27, 2014

I don't think this is any harder then 5.9, and it would probably be 5.8 in Ca. May 16, 2015

geoff georges, I completely agree. It's so quality and so short that it could easily be 5.8. Jun 27, 2016

Did not thing it was 10a (definatley not at index) with "gear to .5" i was expecting more variety of gear, had a hard time finding a place for a .3 never did fit a .5 but you could sew this up with .4s (BD) couple good rest stances made it easy to place nuts a few times Jul 17, 2016
The route had a tree on it when Cummins put it in his guide (and when I first led it years later). Great warm up for the harder lines nearby. Gear to .5. You can also continue up from the anchor to the PBR anchor if you want to TR the best line on the Middle Wall. Gear to .75 Jun 11, 2018
