Climb straight up chalked (interesting) holds. Traverse right around 15' to step on top of a bulge (this is the crux). Climb straight up small jugs and big feet. Head left at the large flake. Above the flake, straighten out, using jugs for your left hands and crimps for your right. Then, just a few easy moves to the anchor. Fairly sustained and aerobic climbing - 9+/10a pretty much the whole route. A nice long and fun line for the Butte. Do it.


Rap using the first set of bolts you find on the ledge you can walk to from the road.


The route is bolted, but they look rusty as all hell and old. Oh, so very old. I don't trust 'em. If you do, use them, but take a close look first. I'll stick to TR-ing it myself.


There have been 2 different people break ankles who fell before they could clip the first bolt. Stick clipping the rusty old thing or tying off the fir tree on top to safely access the bolts and toproping is the preferred way of doing this route.... unless you need some spice in your life of course.

This was an interesting climb and one of my new favorites at Rocky Butte. Good rap/top belay ledge, large bottom belay area, and lots of variation on a relatively long climb all combine to make this one of my new go to's for quick laps after work. Thanks to Bill Coe for all the hard work and good beta for this climb (we tied into the tree for safety before setting up anchor). FYI some of the bolts are spinning and look very old, if you are planning on leading this climb. Anchor bolts and links look/feel fine. Sep 16, 2016
