This is a nice 5.9 as there are some sketchy smooth areas towards the top, and a crack with some layback moves needed, which was the crux of the climb. not bad though.


The rock is easy to pick out, as it is the one with all of the graffiti. The west face is an easy scramble to the top. This route is on the east face.


When I did it, there is a spot to sling a 30 ft webbing around the boulder at the top, and then a 15 ft webbing around the top of that boulder as a second anchor. It would be easy to set a few top anchors if people had the equipment.

as long as the bolts are different colors you should be good:) man that would be sweet to see some bolts and anchors on this one. so close to everything! Jul 6, 2011
I have been thinking about doing my first Trad PG13 TR.

Would this be a good one to cut my teeth on? Is it recommended to wear fingerless gloves during traditional season?

Do you think if I bolted this rock, it would take away from the fine graffiti art? Jul 5, 2011

I heard Alex Honnold is looking to solo this beast. Half Dome was just a warm up for this endeavor. Jul 5, 2011

Wow, a three star, 65 foot Grade V 5.9 top rope, and, its by my home!

Maybe if I get an early enough start, I won't have to spend the night on it... Jul 5, 2011
Wow! I have checked out that line for years but just never had enough webbing. Jul 4, 2011
