Like the dodgy vixen we all know, this leads you to believe that it's going to be easy and sweet. Then it starts getting kind of gnarly and then really friken' difficult. Start by liebacking the gamble oak leaning against the lip of the cave. Hop on the rock clipping bolts across the slab and up the corner/arete (use a long sling on the fourth bolt). Traverse the ledge right, to the obvious bolt line, (long slings on fifth and eighth bolts) through soft huecos and a big overhang and headwall.


50 feet left of the waterfall, look for the big gamble oak leaning against the lip of the cave. This shares the start (first four bolts) with Hysteria and Totally High Maintenance.


Twelve bolts. Bring three long slings for the fourth, fifth, and eighth bolts to reduce rope drag. There are fixed anchor with biners for lowering. There are security cameras afixed on the anchor to catch biner thieves (slow death penalty). If you take biners 'cause they're worn out, leave your own then.


Hiya Tim-
Is this the route that I think it is, with a pretty obvious, softball-sized pocket if you start on the tree? There is (or was, soft rock) a V8/9 boulder problem into what I think this route is, going up a short, left-facing sort of dihedral, though I topped out (R) to the right. Fixed pin at the lip of the cave?
Best to y'all down there, miss it. Mar 8, 2012

Is this the route that pulls hueco jugs to a steep roof surmounted by crankin' on some epoxied crimps? Mar 25, 2012

Big huecos to crankin' on epoxied crimps over a bulge sounds about right. If one is standing at the tree that begins the routes (identified by a bolt near the tree), this is the line that climbs the tree then goes furthest right. Really cool climbing if one ignores the hollowness of the big huecos. Mar 26, 2012
