Description

Start as for Luscious but go right at the top of the slab to clip the first bolt. A fun straight forward climb using pockets and the arete.

Location

this route starts the same as luscious and goes up the arete.

Protection

5 bolts to 1 open shut and 1 chain.

Reachy moves made this easier for me than my 5'2" partner. The real climbing doesnt start until after the first bolt and only last 30 feet, but they are a strenuous 30 feet, hardest parts were usually clipping. Thought the rock was pretty good quality. Mar 14, 2017

I thought this was pretty stiff for 11a. It is absolutely far more difficult than marauding monkeys. I'd give it 11b/c. The holds are good, but far apart. Each move is pretty committing, and clipping the third bolt is very tenuous. Oct 11, 2014

John's smoking choss dust, this thing isn't over .11a even by soft Malibu standards.

Been thinking about doing this one for awhile, just to tick it off, but it looked so terrible. It actually has some pretty fun moves on it and decent-ish rock. Apr 11, 2011
Joe Kristy drilled the bolts, I first led it, Bill, Matt and Joe followed. 5.11b/c depending on reach. Aug 29, 2010

The crux move for me was 2nd to 3rd bolt and this seems to be height dependent. Aug 12, 2010
