Access Issue: Seasonal Closure - 2018 Update Details

Description

This is currently the farthest left line. It has 3 bolts and probably 5.9 climbers might want additional traditional pro, but it can be led as a 5.8+/5.9 (5.6 R) climb without.

Go up and find a brief crux between bolts 1 & 2. Some folks find no crux moves here. Find easy terrain with wide fingers cracks for protection. Some folks find the crux to be near the 3rd bolt. Clip a final bolt and reach for the 2 bolt anchor with Mussy hooks.

This had been given a name within the database, but someone has deleted it. Now others have provided the name, Side Dish. This may have been climbed in the 1980s by Ed Ash.

Location

This is currently the farthest left route on this little buttress.

Protection

3 bolts & a couple of fat fingers-sized cams or nuts.

There is ground fall potential from below the 3rd bolt in the gear placement range if you opt not to take gear. The climbing there is easy though. This is the least good of all the routes. Jul 22, 2010

I think the crux on this is right by the 3rd bolt. I was surprised how easy it felt between the 2nd and 3rd bolt after having read the description on here. Jul 28, 2014

This route felt like 5.7 climbing with one 5.8 move at the last bolt. I couldn't find any 5.9 moves on the route like the new guidebook suggests. Used a 0.4 BD halfway up, but the terrain is pretty easy in that section. Sep 13, 2017
