Climb the obvious boulder start left of Devil in the White House and right of Ethics in Bondage (bolt protects the boulder start to the Ethics route).

Follow the bolts on the face that lead to the two small roofs to a bolted anchor.


Left of the popular Devil in the White House and right of Ethics in Bondage (Ethics has the low bolt protecting it's boulder start).


If you are a solid 5.10 onsighter, then you can climb this with no gear to the first bolt (think high-ball boulder problem). Otherwise bring some gear to protect under the first bolt.

Intimidating, but definitely worth tying in! Moderate jugs with a few great confidence-boosting sections! Could be considered for the 10 range! Apr 6, 2014

Really cool movement on this one. In terms of protection--you'll realize this after you give it a burn, but the first bolt that protects the bouldery start offers no real protection, so don't bother. Better off with a spotter. Also, between the second and third bolt is run-out to the extent that it's a guaranteed ground fall, so if you're a little shaky in the 11-range, bring a piece to set in the horizontal crack. A C4 .5 will do ya. Mar 19, 2018
