Follow the shallow arch and thin crack to larger holds and a bolted anchor shared with Rockaholic.

Not sure if I went off route, but this seemed like nice moderate face climbing to me leading up to a fun overhang/bulge. I climbed it twice to try different ways to get over the overhang, and I found the moves easier center left. Fairly dirty, but well worth it.


About 10' left of Rockaholic.


I climbed on toprope from the bolted anchor shared with Rockaholic. No directional needed in my opinion. I can't make gear recommendations as I didn't lead it.

I should add that this route shared a tree anchor with Rockaholic, and that this tree died some years ago. I believe there is a new fixed anchor (on gear), but I'm not sure exactly where it is, or if it's still there.

Edit: As of July 2017, use the new fixed anchor on Rockaholic. Jun 22, 2017

Definitely harder than either Equis or Rockaholic. This is a fun route and can be protected with small gear. It needs a wire brush but I think it could be a classic. I find it more fun and challenging than the other routes in this area with some very cool moves, especially getting around the boulder near the "finish." The bolts I'm aware of are at a big ledge which is about 30-40' short of the top of the cliff. Im not sure if it is supposed to be the finish of the climb but I think a lot of people are using them for this, Rockaholic and Delirium Tremens. Oct 29, 2017
