Description

This is a good warm-up or a good lead for the fledgling leader who is climbing 5.9. It has steep climbing with great holds the whole way. Scramble up to the ledge and climb up a bit to the first bolt. Then follow 3 more bolts up the steep face. Go right at the 4th bolt to a small alcove rest, and then punch it to the anchors.

Location

This is located just up the hill from Storm Jumper, look for the climb that starts above the ledge.

Protection

4 bolts, chains.

This might get the award for the most overhung 5.9 around.

Getting to the high first bolt isn't difficult, but I would be apprehensive of sending a new 5.9 leader up this. Jul 30, 2015

Agree that 5.9 leaders should stick clip the first bolt.

Really fun. Feels like a gym route. Aug 3, 2015
