Description

Start up a finger crack that leads to the crux, and the only 10b part, 7m off the deck. The rest of the climb is more of a 5.9 with various finishes, the mantle finish is more exciting.

Location

Smoke Bluffs - Burgers and Fries

Protection

You can protect the crux with a orange Metollius cam, or a DMM walnut.

I would like to give this route more stars as the climbing is quality but the lack of good pro at the low crux move (or below it, or above it) makes this too dangerous to climb other than TR. Sep 28, 2017

This is likely a route best for a confident 5.10 leader. I used a half dozen pieces from fingers up to a #3. Aug 2, 2016

protect the crux with a #3 orange TCU...I didn't test it but it was bomber...I caught a buddy that fell on the crux and it held. Kept him from decking. Jun 22, 2016

protected the crux down low with an orange tcu, i imagine it is only protectable with a tcu or some offset cam, nothing else will likely protect it in a straitfoward way (maybe somthing tiny? or a blind small piece of some kind in the crack out right maybe) but the tcu felt secure, although i didn't test it. Also bring more cams in bd size .75 and maybe #1 than you might think, protection gets odd up high if you brought a light rack like me, but the climbing eases so i ran out a few spots.

oh also as of april 2016 there is a bolt anchor but no rings so its a walk off, and both bolts are spinners and they are not a style of bolt that can be tightened (look like petzl long life bolts)

fun climb Apr 11, 2016

The 10b part of this route is right at the bottom and it doesn't protect well with a cam. Use a DMM offset nut or a sideways DMM wallnut. Mar 5, 2016

As described, this route is listed as "Catch Me Quicker" in the Bourdon guide and "Catch Me Quick" in the McLane guide.

I also placed an orange Metolius at the crux, but wasn't happy with it. Two lobes were fully engaged, two were flaring. If I fell, the gear popped and I'd decked, I wouldn't be mad at the gear for it. On my way down I tried some nuts in that slot, found a WC #8 placed sideways was the only thing I had on my rack that would inspire confidence. Sep 3, 2013
