Start by (stick?) clipping a bolt and lumbering past a somewhat silly low roof, or, perhaps more sensibly, by skipping the bolt and bypassing the roof to the right. Climb through easy blocks to reach a second, less silly roof. The fun begins here. Pass the roof and continue up flake system until it ends. The final holds, for most, are galvanized.


About 30 feet R of House of the 7th Bobcat, and about 10 feet L of Strange Boar


Light rack to 1", 2 QDs, sport anchor. The climb is well protected, but plan your cam placements well as you move through the less-silly roof that marks the start of the difficulties.

The roof at the start is stiff. After that, it eases off but stays fun. The rating is for those of us who quickly grab the chains at the top after getting both hands on the last horizontal seam. To clip in without grabbing the chains would be a bit harder. Mar 26, 2012

Fun moves, but over too soon. Apr 16, 2012

First roof w/ bolt is fun and powerful, no need for a stick clip if you are tall, second is much harder, gear is good but jams are inexplicably bad, final slab section forms a second crux. Apr 13, 2014

I would not say the first roof move is silly, fun undercling to flake ledge above. that crimpy finish was silly though, and so clean, one marvels at the spotless granite. Aug 5, 2014

Gear is tricky on this one. I lead it about two weeks ago, and my buddy lead it yesterday. fell at the roof and popped two pieces. Be really sure of your gear before committing to the crux moves. Cool route though! Jun 28, 2015
At the 2nd (main) roof, it's harder if you stay straight in the crack & easier if you use the arete out left. Jul 16, 2015
The roof at the start is so fun! It really add to the route, don't bypass it. No need for stick clip either. Apr 8, 2016

Bring up a 00 BD cam if you want to protect the moves when you pull through the roof. The crux is clipping the chains for sure. Jan 28, 2017
