Description

Burly, thuggish 5.11 leads to the first crux. After pulling the tricky .12a undercling traverse, pull up onto a slab to rest up for the second .12a crux; thin, powerful moves lead to big holds to pull through the roof to the anchors.

Location

This is right of Howdy Doody Time, left of Double Dominatrix.

Protection

12 bolts to chains.

Real hard for 12a. I don't get how people are down rating this one. Not at all a good intro to 5.12. Sep 11, 2017

Sent this yesterday, after working the sequences last summer. Gotta say it's tons of fun. Anyone who can send Howdy Doody Time, the 11b next to it, should try this route. Good rests between the cruxes, and both sequences are really a blast. Aug 28, 2017

I'm surprised people call this soft. I think this is nearly as hard as Double Dominatrix. I'd like to see some 11+ beta. Mar 6, 2017

Rad climb. My first time up at Golden Gate, and I must say, I am impressed. This crag has great ambiance, tucked in the forest on a hillside. Such a different vibe than the more urban setting of CCC and North Table. The bottom crux felt a bit harder than the upper crux. Very fun route. This would be a good entry into the .12a grade, there's a bolt about every 5 ft.! Sep 7, 2015

This is a really fun route. The holds are all quite good, but the pump factor is high on this one. Fortunately, there is a really good rest before each crux to depump. The sequences are less than immediately obvious at first. There could be 2-3 fewer bolts without a detriment to safety. 5.9 moves don't need to be protected as closely as 11+ moves and being able to make a few moves before a clip makes for a more pleasant climbing experience.

This was our first route on the crag & in Golden Gate. First ascent date was June 8, 2003. Always fun to repeat, but I keep cutting my left arm below 5th bolt unless I tape or wear a jacket. Jun 4, 2015

Tricky route for the onsight.... Pretty cool engaging moves with a crux down low and one up high. Brilliant! Jun 20, 2013

Excellent route. Two 12 cruxes. I'm gonna say 12a/b for BoCan. Well protected, such a teacher! Dec 3, 2012

You're probably right, Kevin. 12a seems to be the going consensus. I'll go with that. Oct 26, 2012

Kevin, you're just a pulling down machine. Great route with some really fun climbing on the lower half and the pumpy finish. Oct 15, 2012

Is this really 12 a/b? Seems soft, as far as Shelf and Flatirons standards, mayby BC standards.... Oct 15, 2012
