DescriptionA nice adventure route at a forgiving grade, Route 66 is a quality line that ascends solid rock using jams, finger locks, stemming, and face climbing.
Climb an open dihedral for about 35 feet to a grunting finish at a resting ledge. Traverse left on this ledge and gain a upward, right leaning hand crack. Climb this crack to another resting ledge (mind your rope drag). From this point, move right on the ledge to a heavily featured face. Climb this unprotected for 15 feet to a good stance. Build an anchor on top.
Descend via a walk towards the east and rap off of the Two Bits anchor. If that anchor is busy you can also walk over and rap Stretch Marks or take on a "heady" scramble to down-climb on the northwest end.
