Description

The route begins on a slightly overhanging rock and steepens as you go. Enjoy bigger moves and bigger holds on steeper rock as you near the anchors, great introduction to pulling on steep jug-hauls in the red!

Location

When you walk up the trail from the main road, this is the juggy and steep line that will be right in front of you. Note 2 more sport routes to the right, including a crimpy 12a,are the last routes on the wall before the slabs.

Protection

5 bolts, so 7 draws

The crux is finding it without a top rope hanging on it, oh and the hard to figure out while trying to onsite. Sep 7, 2016

Did you try tightening the nut by hand? Is the bolt moving or is the hangar just loose? Specifics are important here.

Unless the bolt itself is moving, it should be fine. If you can't tighten the nut by hand, a wrench ought to do it. Jun 9, 2016

This may be one of the most difficult 10a's I've ever climbed. It is burly and heady, particularly from the 3rd to 4th bolt. This climb can easily beat you down, so do not take it lightly. That said it is exceptional and should be on your tick list. Apr 25, 2016

Some tough moves near the top as the route kicks back more. Big throw leads to a somewhat sequence dependent moves. Great route! Apr 28, 2011

This is a very fun route, and in my opinion it is one of the steepest 10a's you will ever find! Pure fun and big moves on great holds. It is great to warm up on if you are looking to get on some of the harder and steeper stuff in the area. Nothing to the left of Jungle Gym looks all that great though, so I would probably skip those routes. Nov 18, 2009
