downright wonderful


the trail leads right past it


10 bolts (hangers)

The best route on the Western Front just got better! The middle section now goes directly up left of the big bushy ledge (which it used to detour onto). An extra bolt has been added, and one moved over a bit. The route is now more sustained, safer and a bit harder (solid 5.9 now, not 9 minus). The new upper crux involves a tricky hidden hold, easy if you find it, desperate if you don't....

There is also now a backup bolt above the top anchors - which have been changed to chains. Aug 24, 2013

OPTI-MYSTIC 5.9 *** (90’') F(11b)
A fine direct line up the left upper face (directly below the prominent Ponderosa pine). Follow the bolts through a variety of interesting moves on the lower face, stay left of the big ledge and on through an exciting bulge (keep optimistic...) to the easier but delightful upper section and 2 chain anchors on top. (There are two cruxes, passing the third and sixth bolts.) FA 10/2008

This is the 3rd route from the left side on the Upper WF Wall. May 26, 2013
