Description

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

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

Protection

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

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

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

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
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
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

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
