Description

This is the second route from the left at We Did Rock. The crux comes right after clipping the second bolt. An undercling in the horizontal crack can be used to get over the bulge but the move is burly and the sloper holds immediately above are a bit difficult to use. The climb gets a little easier after this but then you still have a slab section to contend with at the top. Compared to the other routes on this wall, it's probably harder for the grade.

Protection

Six bolts to a two-bolt anchor with rappel rings.

Super fun climb, seems more like 75 ft. however. This doesn't really make a difference but just thought I'd throw that out there. Aug 9, 2012

If climbing exactly the line of the bolts, it's definitely a 5.10 Aug 22, 2014

If you are waiting for another party to finish absolutely nothing just keep waiting, it's a far more enjoyable route and good for new leaders at the grade. This route is a tad run out near the top compared to how many are set at 38. Jun 10, 2015

Really fun lead. The slabby section is quite thin for a 5.9 May 9, 2017

The slabby section just past the 5th bolt was hardest for me. Bolt 3 to 4 was also hard. 2 to 3 was surprisingly easy for me. Jun 17, 2017

Really really small feet in one spot for a 5.9 (close to the top), or I didn't notice the correct ones Sep 4, 2017

Seems like a 5.10 if you go up the slab. More in line with 5.9 if you traverse to the right but that makes it pretty runout. May 28, 2018
