Description

This has mostly good hands and a move or two of .10a where it pinches down. Join Frank's Wild Years where it cuts right (i.e., .11a/b).

Location

Start 30' left of Frank's Wild Years. Climb the 5.10 hand crack in the right-facing corner, and join Frank's Wild Years.

Protection

SR with a few extra hand-sized pieces.

A little crusty rock down low detracts from the overall quality of the route. A couple good jams and some interesting stemming down low lead to a no-hands rest before the "campus" crux which, in my opinion, is significantly easier following this corner versus the finger crack of Frank's Wild Years. With that in mind, a 5.10 leader should feel pretty comfortable on this. Single rack to 3" with a few small TCUs or C3s. Nov 3, 2016

Another hidden gem at this off-the-beaten-path crag. Sep 25, 2013

This route really has some varied climbing and not *that* many good hand jams. Like most of the Quarry, the rock is flaring and a little odd. Gear is great though. Single rack to #3 with extra purple to gold Camalots sews it up. The only significant detractor is the last bit of climbing above the final crux on pretty crappy rock. A few slings are nice for the traverse section, and you can double up gear on the upper crux to make sure you stay off the ledge.

A fixed purple TCU sits at the "campus" crux. It's been there a while but seems solid. You can back it up if you like. May 1, 2011
