DescriptionThe Other Road starts about 20' right of Squid Kid and is a 3-pitch classic! All 3 pitches require some gear placements but are mostly bolted...some tricky route finding involved....
P1: 5.10c, 100'. Start where the large tree is closest to the wall, climb the left-facing corner(3"cam placement) to gain the bolts. THE OTHER ROAD is the leftmost of 3 new pitches just right of Squid Kid. Step left and up past 4 bolts to 2-3 gear placements (thin), then 5 more bolts to the 2-bolt anchor. To continue the next 2 pitches of THE OTHER ROAD, it's best to step down right and traverse (20') over to the Trooper Traverse "alcove" 3-bolt belay.
P2: 5.11a, 110'. Step up right of the "Trooper Traverse" to climb gear and bolts up through the dramatic "apex roof" and up past 2 more overhangs to the 2-bolt anchor. Exciting!
P3: 5.10c, 90'. Step right of the anchor to start. Climb bolts and gear(thin) leftward to the top 2-bolt anchor. The "Mother Lode" finishes 20' to the right....
