Description

Climb the left side of the wall starting in the left seam and heading up over the bulge to the anchors. Pretty run out between the second and third bolts. Good rock for the A-Hills...

Protection

Draws for 6 bolts to anchor.

Definitely not PG-13. First bolt is trivial to clip--positive edges and large feet, and the run-out to the third bolt is on large edges/jugs with equally large feet. Overall a fun, technical jaunt up a shady wall. Highly recommended if you're in the hills. May 31, 2016

Hey, Butters--

I hear you about the first bolt. Consequently I've embraced the art of stick clipping! It's huge fun and saves the potential for ankle-busting falls low to the ground. I can't recommend it enough.

Cheerz.

getting to the 1st bolt is pretty exciting.. and getting to the 3rd bolt certainly makes you think with the pg13 spacing, but the holds are very positive. very sustained climbing and awesome undercling on the roof. very rewarding climb. Jan 28, 2014

"PG" issue is not a big deal if you are at all up to leading in the low/mid-10 range. The section in question has positive holds. One of the great routes in the Hills. Nov 10, 2013

bigger holds for the the little stretch between 2nd and 3rd bolts. the bulge/roof is fun with actually two bulges that offer good underclings (and even a good handjam), but also offers the opportunity to keep moving left for better and better holds. still in the 10 range though. fun route. 6 bolts - anchor Apr 13, 2011
