Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. Details


An OK climb, but obviously bolted from the best stances, not to protect the hardest climbing the best. This is not a good warm-up or beginner climb and merits some caution. You will want to be sure to flash this one or a ledge fall may result.


This is the right most route of the South facing part of the Archway and is the furthest of the 4 adjacent routes from the rebar ladder. It can be started on the low angle section of Gruntfest past 3 threads on longer slings, or can start independently out to the right in its own corner.


Either 3 thread and 3 bolts or 4 threads and 3 bolts, both to a 2 bolt anchor shared with Gruntfest, all depending on how it is done. Take a few longer slings.
Also, beware that the name translates to 'Chicken Shit' probably due to the rather disconcerting fall potential despite being a sport climb. THis is perhaps the most poorly bolted climb on the wall, earning it the reputation in the local guidebook as being 'A 6a for the 6c leader.'
