Description

This is a rated 5.9 route, but with its strenuous nature and awkward positions and movement, it feels like 5.10 (3 bolts and 2 bolt anchor). Just starting this climb is exciting. Step off the ground and crimp through a right-facing corner a few moves left to below an awkward ledge overhead. Reach up and clip the second bolt, and pull a strenuous crimping balancy mantle to the ledge. Romp up to the right up a ramp to the anchor.

Contributors note: I did not get Mark Rolofson's permission to post this route, I'm not sure if I'm required to, but he was upset I posted one of his routes on another one of "his" crags.

Location

It is on the far left side of Lookout.

Protection

3 bolts and 2 bolt anchor.

This is so short that it looks stupid, but it is actually really fun. Sep 23, 2015

I did this cool route again, and it definitely feels 5.10ish. Definitely worth doing, but stretch first if it's your warm-up. Sep 24, 2015

Funny that you guys thought this route was worth two stars. I guess I should say thank you. I thought it barely deserved one star on a 5 star system. Interesting moves to start it & then its pretty easy to the anchor. Jul 16, 2017
