Start by doing Peanuts to serve you as pitch 1.

For pitch 2, continue up the corner, then take the finger-to-hand crack up and left (crux) to a 3-bolt belay on a nice ledge (10d-11a). Short, but pumpy. You can combine this with pitch 1.

Pitch 3 is the route's overall crux, going up right in a crack that starts wide, but quickly narrows to finger pockets (11a/b). The crack reaches a left-tilting overlap, which starts with a hand pod, but quickly narrows to fingertips (11c/d). After going left for about 25', the crack goes vertical (5.9) and ends on a forested ledge.

For pitch 4, Go up and right through the forest to a cave, and take the short chimney on the left (5.9 entry move, two bolts) to a comfortable, grassy belay stance below a large corner.

The last pitch, pitch 5, is long and sustained. Take the lower-angle ramp/thin corner up and right of the large corner (10b), enter the steeper corner above (11a), and at the top of this corner, go straight up to another corner that goes left. Mantle the ledge on top, go up and left. For the last 10 feet, clip a bolt and do a one-move dyno for the top (incut!)


Same as for Peanuts to Serve You. Just right of Bowling to Biscuits, and just left of the Bobcat Cringe. See the beta photo at right for details.


Triple set of nuts to 1/2", several 3/4"-1" nuts, and a Camalot single set to 3.5, with doubles in sizes 0.5 to 1.

"Went up project pitch on pitch 5 and its not easy breaking back right to 11a dihedral..."

I haven't tried it. It looks nice, but when we were there it seemed a little dirty.

From the belay to the 11d traverse-right part, how hard was the corner?

Great line, thanks Derrick and nice to meet you! I thought the grades on the pitches were fair, but there would be no way I could free the crux with my fat fingers. Couldnt even get them past my fingernails in the crack. I think this route is with up there with Serenity Crack as one of the coolest multi-pitch thin routes in the west. I liked it better even. Cant wait to repeat it! Sep 15, 2014
Thanks for all the hard work scrubbing these pitches, they were fun! The topo and rack both seem a bit off. On P3, where two spots of .11c are marked. I'd call the second spot easily 2 or 3 letter grades harder than the first. The crux is a short boulder problem in the middle of a short pitch, but it felt maybe V4-V5, and for a rack, I'd say leave all the stoppers behind (3 sets suggested?) and bring a double set of cams from blue alien to red alien, with singles of .75-#3 or #4 (the only spot where you might want #3 or #4 is on the 5.9 starting section).

Hi Jon, I thought I would answer your question about P5. I don't think any move harder then 11a. I took a fall trying to get up to the corner I think where in the picture someone describes as 10b crux. I was about 6' above a #3, layback up a blunt downturned flake. I was not seeing any pro available, tried to reverse the moves, slipped and ran down the slab. It has some insecure pulling on features, which is more intimidating then hard. Once I got back up roof on left I discovered a hidden left slot that makes pulling up to the pedestal with finger crack above much easier, A #4 protects below this . I don't think it is as hard as Strange Boar, really good, just dirty. Jun 15, 2016

Geoff, are you referring to the left variation at the start of the pitch?

If you look at the picture labeled "Derek on pitch 5...", I put in some yellow topo marks to show where this variation is. Jun 16, 2016

no, not the variation, actually the flake just above Derek in the picture is what I fell off of. But I did TR the variation after rapping from the top. It is really good, very, very dirty- anyone ever climb it before?
Now I understand Michal is referring to this variation when he says cut back right, was confused. Jun 17, 2016
