Description

The slab and undercling at the start is the crux of the route. After that, everything is a cruise. A little crumbly at the top.

Location

To the right of Shocker on the West side of Motorboat Rock. The obvious right leaning crack.

Protection

Great Pro, medium sizes. Boulders up top for anchors.

Really not worth the effort. You do a couple of moves and then the climb is basically over. Not a very fun route and there are more fun things worth the time in the area. Apr 24, 2016

Very crumbly at and near the top of the climb - be aware when topping out or setting top rope anchor.

For me, the start of the climb is the hardest part of this route. Until you are able to stem the right flake an under cling at the crack will work while smearing the slab. Once you reach the tip of the flake to the right there are good holds and there are plenty of sections to place pro if not top rope climbing.

I top rope climbed this route. Slipped off the start and swung into the rock. Be aware if top rope climbing that the anchor placement will cause a pendulum swing from left at the crack towards the right and into the rock.

Have fun! Climb safe and double check yourself! :) Jul 13, 2014
