Let me preface this. Supposedly this route was climbed a long time ago but I cleaned it extensively and it has not been reported officially anywhere. Take it for what it's worth.

Description: Follow the rightward leading hand crack with good protection. Grab face holds when you can and pull up into the crack. Once there, follow the face up to a stance. Here, if you are tall enough you can get a yellow alien in the high crack. If not, you might have to run it out. If so, you're looking at a long fall. It is possible to sling a root at chest height but the FA party didn't so it's up to you. From here, pull the flake with marginal feet up to the next flake, with less marginal feet. Then pull onto the top.

Start with a steep leaning hand crack that brings you to a good stance. From here work in some protection and climb the face on good holds and sloping feet to the anchor above.

The anchor at the top also provides a good TR setup for the classic stemming corner below.


The Inner Wall at Index Town Walls. Follow the description there. It is two climbs left of Toxic Shock, next to the 5.10d corner.


Two number one's and two number two's and a yellow alien. A few handsized cams and a few finger pieces should suffice. 


You can also just boulder up this, no gear needed. Aug 8, 2010

Blame me for the "Journey" name. The route had been done back in the early '80s when I lowered down the stemming corner to clean it. Colin nicely cleaned it up in 2010 and reported it here under a different name. More recently Lucas D- recleaned it together with the stemming corner, installing a nice modern anchor at the top of both lines. May 21, 2018

It looks like it deserves more stars now.
A fantastic cleaning job has led to a route that should soon rival its neighbors for fun, moderate trad. May 25, 2018

Super clean right now and worth racking up for if you're in the area. Jun 2, 2018
