Private Property Details
In 2011, the Ventura Family (owner of Miguel’s Pizza) purchased the land above the cliff line, and the RRGCC’s 2017 purchase of the land beneath the cliff line and the surrounding areas ensures that the Motherlode, Chocolate Factory, and southeastern end of Sore Heel are climber-owned.
DescriptionLocated in the middle of the Warm Up wall, Injured Reserve along with its neighbors to the left and right provide an excellent warm up for the mere mortals working 12s at the Lode. Scramble up a large boulder/ ledge to begin. Stick clipping the first bolt is a grand idea, for blowing the open moves would be very bad news.
Start by cranking a big move off of a good crimp with questionable feet. Pump up jugs for a few more bolts where you will be met with the crux: Either make a body tensiony big move off a slopey ledge to a good pocket or finesse your way up a slopey pinch. This crux alone made the route feel a little stiffer than the grade would suggest- Consensus is starting to trend towards 5.11b. After surmounting the crux, cruise jugs to the anchors, keeping it together for a great clipping jug.
LocationThe steepish face in the middle of the Warm Up wall. Of the 3 elevens that reside on this sector, Injured Reserve is the middle one.
