Description

A manufactured climb that route developer created into a very high quality climb that I consider the best 5.10 at the crag. Climb goes straight up, passing the very left side of a small roof to all positive holds. Steepens up at top right before the anchors.

Location

10 feet right of Mass Production, 5th route to the right and starts on top of a small rock. Rappel or lower down

Protection

8 botls to double ring anchors

The best of the bunch here with intriguing sequences on positive pockets and a little bit of a pump thrown in for good measure. Mar 18, 2012

I can't fathom why this is a 4 star rating... It feels like a gym climb, the beta is revealed just by looking at it since its a "chipped" route. Very pumpy like a gym, ok moves but deep holds like a 5.8 or 5.9. I guess this would be like an indoor 5.10a. Very different for an outdoor climb. Oct 28, 2012

Couldn't find the alleged intriguing sequences--climbs like a ladder. Straight on, pocket to pocket.

Steep and pumpy toward the end--if 10a is your limit, this is not a gimme for that grade. Dec 9, 2013

Fun route, easy holds but provides a good pump. Made me realize what a fat tub-o-lard I am. This wall is totally manufactured and they did a good job at it. Thanks for the hard work. Feb 7, 2014

This is a fun route,super protected with bolts after every 2-3 moves. Everyone is right, this is an outdoor gym route. Got a super awesome pump on the lead, it's just a really cool route. Jan 12, 2016

Thought it was a lot of fun, all the individual moves are not that difficult, 10a or less, but the wall gets progressively steeper which leading really makes it tough because there are no real rests. Its not a particularly long climb so if you can power through quickly it'll really help. Oct 31, 2016

It has been said many times but I will say it again; since the holds were placed by a person and not by nature this feels just like a gym route. Pretty sustained climbing on far apart holds on a slightly overhanging wall. Probably the most pumpy 10a I have ever climbed. Just a heads up, all of the holds on this route are very positive and there are plenty of bolts, but I found that the lip you grab to clip the anchor was the hardest hold on the route.. So if you are as pumped as I was clipping those anchors can be quite challenging. May 12, 2018
