Description [Suggest Change]

Fun route definitely a worthwhile addition to the wall, a little less pocket pulling and a little more technical through the crux section involving a mini arrete bulge formation about halfway up.

Location [Suggest Change]

The bolted line left of third degree, making it the leftmost route on the wall.

Protection [Suggest Change]

First two bolts of The Third Degree make for the start, then move left up 3 more bolts. Anchors.

Whomever bolted this line needs to go ahead and give us a name. Its seems everyone 'knows about it' and talks about, so lets have a name here people. May 31, 2011
Fun.

Nobody -- except me -- can miss the giant X chalked onto the perilously loose block near the crux. Hard to believe it's still there. (Not for lack of yarding on my part.)

Here's a name with no relation to the crag: X Marks the Not. Jul 22, 2012
I asked Bill Leventhal (who bolted this route) on August 10, 2013 for the name and he said it's called Cockblock (5.10d). Can you update the name, please? Jan 2, 2014

I found the 4th bolt to be a little awkward, with all the loose blocks in the big pocket. Bee careful of you footing. Nov 29, 2016

yeah working around to try and not touch the X-ed blocks is totally the crux, both in strength and technicality. It makes for a good challenge in the route, but it's too bad those things are there tempting folks to yard on them. Jun 27, 2017

As an FYI, most pictures of this route are incorrect. I just added a new picture to hopefully avoid confusion. But straightforward to locate, from left of the arete of this face. Nov 19, 2017

Is the crux around the left side of that bulge above the third bolt? I found that going straight up on the right side was way easier. Apr 23, 2018
