Description

This was the "recovery route" established after Rick's broken clavicle (skiing) had healed and his Doctor had cleared him for "normal activity". Alas, the repetitive motion of cleaning and then bolting the route snapped the Titanium implant and re-broke his collar bone. The comment "I wish I hadn't done that" prompted the name. A tricky, long, and fun route with great exposure.

Location

In between Spring Chicken and Pollo Loco about 100 feet left of The Other Side (There's a plaque at the base with name and grade).

Protection

8 bolts to Springer Anchors

Climbed Wishbone yesterday for the first time in...more than a decade and was pleasantly surprised at how interesting and fun it was. Perhaps because it seemed much easier than it looked (a bit light for the 11a grade but I wouldn't change it). Really fun, worth the trek. Mar 9, 2017
