Description

This is a good warm-up for the area and doesn't have the hard crux of Within Range, instead offering a more sustained climb.

Climb an initial steep section with the easiest line just right of the bolt line for the first two bolts, making use of good holds on the right and sharp, fine edges on the face. At the third bolt, traverse left to a set of good holds before moving up to clip the fourth bolt. The climbing stays fairly sustained around the fourth bolt before easing up considerably in the upper part of this climb before the anchors. The upper part features orange rock with a plethora of little "bubble" features on the rock, provding for interesting texture and holds.

This route is a pleasant affair with good, textured rock but it could still use some brushing/climbing/cleaning to help bring it into prime shape.

The name comes from a great song by some Northwest hip-hoppers, Blue Scholars. Life has been busy (newborn, teaching, online masters, etc., etc.), but I just can't stay away from climbing.

Location

This is just right of Within Range, the gray, right-facing corner on the left side of the Hole Wall.

Protection

6 bolts.

Must have cleaned up a bit, not too bad. Good to have something to warm up on here. Apr 24, 2012
