This route features fun and exposed face climbing and makes a great warmup for the harder climbs in the area and may also stress your truth telling abilities.

Climb up the slabby first section past two bolts to a blocky narrow ledge. Plug in some gear and then climb up and right past 4 bolts to a small roof. Get a piece or two over the roof in a small seam. Yard over the roof and then step up and left to the last bolt. A few more moves and the fantastic belay ledge is reached.


Starts 45 ft left of Spry Look and a couple feet left of a 10 ft Juniper tree


Mixed, 7 bolts, red or yellow camolot, small tcus or c3s, small to medium nuts


Great climb- steep, exposed, well protected, and many surprise holds. Nov 27, 2011
most excellent route. nice to have a nut or small off set cam at the roof Dec 13, 2011

Concur with all of the above. Excellent addition to Hanging Chain. I will caution one to be wary of the edges directly off the ledge, broke a large chunk off the first flake above the ledge on 1/29. Route is no harder/easier now. Tread gingerly as falling on the ledge would be no bueno! Jan 30, 2012
Excellent pitch. Spry Look's mini me. :)

I got a green/yellow alien above the roof. Dec 31, 2012

That green sized alien is in pretty hollow rock. Best to get the smaller piece 6 inches or so higher. Jan 7, 2013

I only placed a 2 at the start of the steeper section. Felt the bolts were adequate. Great climb with amazing edges. I felt like I didn't even have to hold on, the holds just grabbed me. Mar 29, 2013

Fun climbing! I too felt one could confidently climb this on the bolts alone. Dec 16, 2017
