Description

The first 12 feet are doable in flipflops. The rest of the route makes up for it. It follows the right arm of what is locally known as the Y.

Location

This is left of Hollow Excuse. See the photo for Hollow Excuse.

Protection

5 black bolts and anchors over the top.

Very fun climbing up the flake with one powerful (for the 5.9 grade - almost a 10a single move). The top is pretty good too. I gave it 3 stars because of the dirtiness up high, but as that cleans up, this should become 4 stars. It's not that dirty though, just "dusty". Jul 11, 2011
Watch out for poison ivy at the base of this route! Sep 4, 2012

Really fun route with great moves. There are a few times when I could imagine a budding 5.9 or even 5.10 leader looking up and thinking "there is no way this is gonna be 5.9," but the feet and hands always appear to keep it honest. A must do for the grade. Apr 20, 2018

Dear God, this thing was awful. You have very easy climbing book ending one hard move on an unbelievably sandy wall , and the anchors...a looped single strand of swing set chain? Haven't seen one of those since the early '90s. I don't know why anyone would waste their time on this with so many good routes immediately nearby. Aug 5, 2018
